Archives Portal Europe Transcribathon
Waterloo Campus, King's College London
30 November

This one-day workshop aims to teach students about how to conduct 
historical research using online archives, and how to encode historical 
documents in order to turn digitised collections into machine-readable 
encoded text.

The workshop will teach students how to use Archives Portal Europe for 
research, and Transkribus for training Handwritten Text Recognition 

Students will work into teams to conduct research on Archives Portal 
Europe and transcribe documents in Transkribus in order to create 
training data for Handwritten Text Recognition. A prize will be awarded 
to the most productive team.

Attendance is free but registration is mandatory, at this link:
