National Archives at College Park

The National Archives ExtravaSCANza is a series of open workshops to scan historical documents and photographs of interest to Wikipedians, helping to improve the quality of Wikipedia's content and providing access for those Wikipedians who cannot physically visit the National Archives. At the same time, we will be assisting the National Archives in its digitization efforts, and all documents scanned will be added to the National Archives' online catalog by NARA staff.
