My Victorian adventure : transcribing 19th century letters at the Armstrong Browning Library.


In the summer of 2017, I completed an internship at the Armstrong Browning Library. My main project during my internship was to help with the Armstrong Browning Library's Victorian Letters Digitization Project. I was tasked with transcribing Victorian letters and preparing them for digitization so that they can be added to an online exhibit in the near future. This online exhibit is an exciting project, which will allow more people to have access to the Armstrong Browning Library's 19th century collection. Throughout my internship, I enjoyed learning the transcription process, the process of preparing letters for digitization, writing blogs, and gathering valuable cultural and historical knowledge about the Victorian era.
