Crowdsourcing Spanish Legal Documents at Law Library of Congress

 [We have the following announcement.  DRE]

The Law Library of Congress is proud to announce our all-virtual festivities to celebrate the first anniversary of our crowdsourcing campaign, Herencia: Centuries of Spanish Legal Documents, starting with a Review Challenge! We still have over 5,000 documents left to review, and from March 15 to March 19, help us chip away at that number by reviewing a page from our Laws & Statutes: Crime and Law Enforcement collection. Follow us on Twitter and HistoryHub for updates on the review challenge. ...

As part of our anniversary celebration, we invite you to our Lunch & Learn Webinar: A Conversation with the Herencia Crowdsourcing Interns on March 17 at 2:00pm EDT. Geraldine Dávila González will moderate a panel discussion with our remote interns from all across the country including: Teresa Kane, Courtney Kennedy, Jake Neuberger, Aranza Obscura, Emily Hausheer, and Lourdes Johnson. Senior legal information specialist, Stephen Mayeaux, will give an overview of the campaign and what to expect in the next year.
