Call for volunteers to beta test Ottoman Turkish Crowdsourcing Project

Dear Colleagues,

Ottoman Turkish Crowdsourcing(OTurC) needs your help to beta test the transcription workflow for  Muallim Cevdet Inancalp’s personal papers and printed articles. OTurC initiative invites citizen scholars and academicians to help transcribe certain collections from the vast 19th and early 20th century Ottoman Turkish manuscript and print archives. Your participation in this project will help create digital transcriptions for researchers to use in their studies while giving you an opportunity to explore original Ottoman Turkish collections in digital format.
