Co-Lab Progress

Co-Lab, a facility to allow transcription, tagging, translation and description of digitized (imaged) records found in Library and Archives Canada’s collection, has been active for about a month.

As of Friday, 1 June there have been 1,450 transcription contributions, 40 translation contributions, 9,181 tags and 197 description contributions entered.

191 images have been enabled for Co-Lab contributions directly from the Collection SearchBETA interface 74 of which have active contributions. Many are simple tags and description. Topics of interest include Louis Riel, Vimy, The William L Mackenzie King diaries, a page from a diary of a FWW soldier travelling east by train, the Cape Bear Lighthouse on PEI and more—a eclectic mix.

Thanks to project manager Alexandra Haggert for the information.
