Public Historians and Shared Authority on the Web

My experience on the national archives and records administration citizen archive website was a very enjoyable one for several reasons Firstly because its catalog of Items is extensive and contains a variety of documents from different parts of the country that are less readily available in New England. Secondly because I thought it was well-organized, clear and easy to navigate. Thirdly because as someone who has transcribed documents this site and project makes it much easier to transcribe them online with the use of the technology to manipulate the digital copies in order to read them better and perhaps have more clarity in deciphering unfamiliarity in their vocabulary, spelling and writing which is helpful when you need a n accurate transcription.
