Welcome to Concordia

Concordia is a platform developed by the Library of Congress (LOC) for crowdsourcing transcription and tagging of text in digitized images. The first iteration of Concordia was launched as crowd.loc.gov in the autumn of 2018.

The application asks volunteers to transcribe and tag digitized images of manuscripts and typed materials from the Library’s collections that cannot be translated well by optical character recognition (OCR). All transcriptions are made by volunteers and reviewed by volunteers. The completed transcriptions will be returned to back to loc.gov to improve search, readability, and access to handwritten and typed documents.

Concordia leverages the LOC’s API to pull materials from the Library's catalog. In future developments, completed transcriptions will be exported as a single document, in bulk by item, project or campaign, or as BagIt bags.

Concordia and crowd.loc.gov are supported by the National Digital Library Trust Fund.
