NYC Volunteer Orientation: June 2024

Friday, June 21 from 10:00am EDT - 02:00pm EDT
36 West 44th Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10036

As part of our mission to preserve New York history, volunteers actively digitize records and documents in our New York City Digitization Center. Volunteers in the center are trained to use our scanning equipment, software for image quality control, and the NYG&B’s best practices for file management.

To get started, we ask prospective volunteers to participate in an orientation in which the NYG&B’s Manager of Digital Collections will provide training in scanning, indexing, and editing, while also assessing your aptitude for the digitization process. These orientations take an hour, with slots offered throughout a designated day of each month. Register via the orange button above.

Volunteers who demonstrate ease and comfort with the technology and a desire to return will be invited to sign up for future volunteer spots.
