SEARCH UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES
As part of our ongoing commitment to working collaboratively with our online community, the Department of Special Collections and Archives is proud to introduce a crowd-sourcing feature for our digital archive. This will allow users anywhere in the world to help us edit the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) component of The Daily Kent Stater online. No scan of such a large quantity of text is ever perfect and this is your chance to help us fix translation issues that occur between the text of the newspaper and the OCR text on the left side of the web page.
1. Within the Daily Kent Stater Digital Archive, before you begin making corrections, you must first create an account by clicking on the link “Register” at the top left-hand side of the page.
