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.

Thanks for sharing this. Very important information for all who want to access Canadian records online. Next question, how do you actually find what documents are out there? Some of the websites are less than easy to find what you're looking for on, even when you know it's there.
