Happy New Year!
PCMD hits 50% completion!
The Volunteer Program Returns!
We are pleased to announce the return of a new, improved, volunteer program! We've re-worked both our at-home and on-site volunteer programs, details of which can be found on the volunteer pages.
Our recommendation at this time is that all volunteers consider pursuing our Crowdsourcing (work-from-home) option. This allows you to volunteer as much or as little as you want, on a schedule you set, from anywhere with an Internet connection. In less than 20 minutes you can be set up and ready to volunteer with the PCMD project; enhancing item descriptions, identifying unidentified photographs, transcribing documents and (if able) translating documents from the Dutch.
You decide what you want to work on! We take care of the rest. Again, follow the simple directions on the crowdsourcing volunteer page to get started.
