War Diaries of the First World War: No. 2 Construction Battalion is 26% complete and new

Canadian National Land Settlement Association is 94% complete, 90% last month.

Winnipeg General Strike of 1919 is 96% complete, 84% complete last month.

Legendary Train Robber and Prison Escapee Bill Miner remains 99% complete.

Japanese-Canadians: Second World War, remains 61% complete.

The Call to Duty: Canada's Nursing Sisters is 94% complete, 93% last month.

New France and First Nations Relations, is 100% complete. 78% last month.

Projects that remain 100% complete are no longer reported here.

There's more being accomplished through Co-Lab than the Challenges. 

Why doesn't LAC give publicity to other things becoming digitized through Co-Lab? 

Last week I wanted to refer back to a letter in the Sir John A. Macdonald fonds available as four images. Clicking on the first image I found there is a blue Contribute button that allows you to transcribe it, which I did for the first two pages containing the information I needed. 

How many items are available to contribute? 

Why isn't the capability better known?
