Let's talk transcribathons
Hosting a transcribathon is a great way to build excitement around a project, deepen engagement, and have fun while getting work done! In August, the University of Virginia held the second annual Julian Bond transcribathon which brought the University and the local community together to help increase access to the papers of the civil rights leader and UVa professor.
“It made me really feel like a citizen of this city.”
