Kansas City, (MO)…The National Archives at Kansas City will be offering two Citizen Archivist opportunities on Tuesday, December 10 and Wednesday, December 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. These events will be held at 400 West Pershing Road, Kansas City, Missouri 64108.
At the National Archives we are continually seeking ways to make our historical records more accessible to the public. We are reaching out to members of our local community to utilize your insights and manpower to help with archival projects. Many of you may not have specific archival training, but your work on tasks such as transcription, preservation, and digitization will make it easier for our users to better access what we have.
Participants can choose to attend one or both sessions, and are encouraged to bring their personal laptop and flatbed scanner for project work. Reservations are required as space is limited, please call 816-268-8000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The National Archives at Kansas City is one of 15 facilities nationwide where the public has access to Federal archival records. It is home to historical records dating from the 1820s to the 1990s created or received by Federal agencies in Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
