Volunteers will provide assistance to the City Park Archives (CPA) by carrying out an effort to scan disbound pages of minute books from the CPA’s collections. All work will take place using overhead scanners at Tulane University in the Special Collections Division. Original materials (disbound pages) will be delivered and picked up by local support staff from the CPA. Volunteers will be responsible only for scanning the pages in a safe and responsible manner. (Archivists Without Borders is co-sponsoring this service opportunity.)
Number of Volunteers Needed:
The Tulane University Library is located on the campus of Tulane University. Take the streetcar to the St. Charles end of Tulane campus and then walk through the campus to Freret, or take the Freret bus from downtown to the Tulane University Library. More details will be provided before the project begins.
