Event description

Description

The first international Transcribathon will run during the course of the AGM.

A Transcribathon is a competition where teams compete with each other to transcribe handwritten texts online.
Each team works together on the transcription of a source from Europeana 1914-1918 (for example a diary).
A jury will award points for the quantity and quality of the transcription and the presentation of the result, with a prize awarded to the winning team.
Teams from the Europeana Network will have an opportunity to experience the tool hands-on in competition with teams from Latvia.

The Transcribathon will start on Monday 7 November at 2pm, allowing AGM attendants who arrive early to join before the AGM 2016 kicks off.
Would you like to help make historical memorabilia accessible to others? Then sign up and join a Europeana Network team at the first international Transcribathon.
