Logbook Scan-a-Thon

National Archives at Washington DC
Washington, DC

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Reserve a scanner and timeslot

Come out and join us for a US Coast Guard Logbook Scan-a-Thon on Wednesday, April 25 from 9 am to 4 pm in the Innovation Hub at the National Archives in Washington, DC.

This event is part of the Innovation Hub’s effort to digitize pages from logbooks of United States Coast Guard vessels that served in the Vietnam War. Click this link to learn more about this project: https://www.archives.gov/innovation-hub/projects/uscg-in-vietnam

During the scan-a-thon, you will help to scan pages from these records so they can be made available online. We’re hoping to scan 2,000 pages in one day!

At noon, Archives Specialist Adebo Adetona will give a talk about the Coast Guard’s involvement in the Vietnam War.

All you need for this event is a research card, which you can get at the National Archives Building. You don’t need to have any prior experience scanning records--we’re happy to show you how it works.

Please email innovationhub@nara.gov to reserve a scanner and timeslot.
