Welcome to The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History Digital Volunteer website!

Digital imaging has made it easier for the Gilder Lehrman Collection to share our resources with the world. However, we need help making sure researchers and computers can find the materials. 

Select one of the projects below to learn more about it.



    Share your experiences with us for inclusion in our digital time capsule. The past year has challenged us in unprecedented ways. Historians in the future will want to know about our experiences and opinions. Help us preserve history and add your voice to the historical record. These materials will document the important issues of time and will remain sealed for 20 years.


    Tagging is a great way for you to help make primary sources more searchable and inclusive. By reading the primary sources and adding keywords, terms, and labels to a document, you can do your part to help document the history of the United States.
