The event will take place on Tuesday 24 September 2019 from 2 pm to 6 pm in Vienna, at the Austrian National Library, Josefsplatz 1.

The new Transcribathon tool will be inaugurated through a special Mini-Transcribathon, where teams will compete in transcribing documents in various languages from the Europeana 1989 Collection.

The Mini-Transcribathon will be introduced by presentations reflecting on the Fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989 and the importance of the disclosure of crowdsourced materials for the common European cultural heritage.

The event will be concluded with an award ceremony and a celebratory reception.

We invite you to experience the new functionalities of the Transcribaton.eu by taking part in the MiniTranscribathon!

You can register via this link. Participation is free, but the number of participants is limited. The detailed program will follow shortly.

Best regards,
The Enrich Europeana project team

Transcribathon.eu is a crowdsourcing platform for the enrichment, such as transcription, annotation and geo-referencing of historical documents available through the Europeana Collections Portal. Transcribathon.eu has been redeveloped and enhanced with new functionalities by the partners of the Enrich Europeana project.
