MLK Day of Service Transcribe-a-thon

Monday, January 17 at 10:00 am 4:00 pm

Explore the history of Sandy Spring through transcription! Transcribe original archival documents, helping to make these fascinating and important artifacts searchable and accessible to all.

There will be two sessions, one held in-person at the Museum from 10 am – 1 pm and the other held virtually via Zoom from 1 pm – 4 pm. On the day of the transcribe-a-thon, a staff member will be available to answer your questions and help you through the transcription process.  The in-person event requires that you bring your own laptop.

You do not have to stay for all three hours or arrive at the start. Feel free to drop in and work for as long as you like.  This opportunity is appropriate for ages 13 and up.  Many documents require the ability to read and transcribe cursive. SSL hours are available.

For accommodation requests, please contact the museum via email or at 301-774-0022.
