This year we are proud to work with the American Archive of Public Broadcasting in their Transcribe to Digitize Challenge!

The challenge is easy (we pinky-swear)!

We, at George Blood, will digitize one tape for every full transcript that is corrected on the American Archive website (http://fixitplus.americanarchive.org). We will do up to 100 tapes for EACH station- across the ENTIRE United States!

For more information, visit https://americanarchivepb.wordpress.com, or to help your station start getting their material digitized check out http://fixitplus.americanarchive.org - and let the challenge begin!

A collaboration between WGBH and the Library of Congress with a long-term vision to preserve and make accessible significant historical content created by public media.
