If you would like to volunteer at the National Archives, but don't have a location in your local area, then the Citizen Archivist program might be for you! Through this program you can take on missions such as document transcription and tagging in order to improve digital access to historical records at the National Archives. For more information visit the Citizen Archivist page.
