Transcription in the Time of Covid
June 1 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The University of Vermont’s Silver Special Collections Library transcription team will describe the project they undertook while working remotely during the pandemic. Using the 20th century diaries of Mary Jean Simpson, UVM Dean of Women from 1937 to 1953, they will discuss how they crafted the project guidelines, developed a shared workflow, and planned to make the end result available online. They will also reflect on the benefits of the work for the team, their collections, and their patrons, including support of scholarly research, classroom instruction, outreach activities to the general public, and future endeavors. Transcription team presenters are Chris Burns, Ingrid Bower, Erin Doyle, Dorothy Dye, Ibrahim Genzhiyev, Tabitha Ireifej, Hannah Johnson, Mike Maloney, and Sharon Thayer.
