Crowdsource history: help edit the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection

Do you love history? Or just enjoy editing? The Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection (CHNC) would relish your help! Old newspapers are archived through a digitized process. Articles are scanned and run through software that generates searchable text. While this tool is great, it is not 100% accurate. Volunteers are needed to help bring clarity to Lafayette and Colorado history.

Members of the public are invited to participate in finding and correcting errors. Dabble or dive in – all help is appreciated!

How to get started
