FromthePage Lab Response
- Our experiential lab this week asks you to use From the Page to transcribe archival materials. We will meet at the law school this week and, using the scanning equipment there, digitize archival materials from Law Special Collections. We will then use FTP to transcribe these documents, mark them up, and create a subject index.
- 600-word response describing your transcription experience due Feb 15. Questions to consider: Should transcriptions rigidly adhere to the manuscript's form? What items did you select for mark up and why? What is the editor's role in giving authority to a transcribed document?
