Are you interested in supporting Museums in Australia by transcribing text from images of specimen labels, field notes and archival materials?

The role

Museums around the country contain huge collections of natural and man made items! Everything from insects to artworks to fossils! If you have ever been to a museum - you have had a glimpse at a small fraction of what they work diligently to store, preserve and display.

What you may not know is that a vast amount of their records exist only in real life, and many museums are trying to ensure that they also have a digital record of what is contained in their collections. They need your help!
