An update and redesign of Scripto, which is a free, open-source tool used for collaborative online transcriptions of documents and multimedia files. This update will ensure it is compatible with Omeka S, a platform for publishing linked open data and integrating collections. In addition to this, the team will migrate the holdings in an important archive (The Papers of the War Department) to Omeka S and develop guidance to assist other cultural heritage organizations in managing their own community transcription projects.

RRCHNM seeks a Level III Digital Humanities Advancement Grant from the NEH-ODH to 1) update and redesign the Scripto transcription tool to make it compatible with the new data architecture in Omeka S; 2) migrate the substantial holdings in the Papers of the War Department collections to Omeka S; 3) and use the project as the basis for producing a number of publications and guides that will support other cultural heritage organizations in their efforts to develop community transcription projects with Scripto and Omeka S.
