Hi all,

I wanted to re-blog a post I just published on the Anti-Slavery Manuscripts (ASM) project blog, detailing some of the research I’ve been leading on independent vs. collaborative methods of text transcription, including information about an A/B experiment which ran on ASM from January to September of this year.

Currently, both the independent and collaborative workflows are open to the public — you can try both, and leave feedback by filling out a quick survey. Visit http://www.antislaverymanuscripts.org and click “Transcribe” to choose a workflow and get started.

For more details on the project and the research, check out the blog post here, and feel free to visit our ASM Talk boards to ask questions & join the discussion.
