VeleHanden: the crowd as a valuable source

The online platform (literally: Many Hands) was initiated in 2011. Originally, it was a new way of indexing scans of registers. Millions of names, addresses and dates were transcribed by thousands of online volunteers.

Archives nationales participatives Projets collaboratifs de transcriptions, annotations et indexations

Via Archivalia

Les Archives nationales font appel aux internautes pour participer à l’enrichissement de ses inventaires.
Les projets participatifs proposent d’indexer et de dépouiller des corpus de documents d’archives, à un niveau très fin, difficilement atteignable par les archivistes au regard du volume des fonds d’archives conservés.
Les contributions des internautes sont intégrées aux inventaires et publiées dans la Salle des inventaires virtuelle. Interrogeables via le moteur de recherche, les contenus collaboratifs bénéficient à tous en permettant d’améliorer les résultats des recherches.

Merci à tous les contributeurs de la part de tous les chercheurs !

International Archives Day 2017 #IAD17 is coming up! Like every year Follow An Archive and Ask Archivists organize a celebration event on Twitter on June 9.

With the celebration event we join the June 9 theme ‘Archives, Citizenship and Interculturalism’ of the International Council on Archives (ICA).
The theme of the annual Twitter event will be: #archivestourism. It’s about tourism in archives.

Archives and tourism

Tourism makes a great match with the ICA theme ‘Archives, Citizenship and Interculturalism’!
Tourism also perfectly matches the 2017 theme of the United Nations: ‘International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development’, #IY2017.
