Wikisource:WikiProject Field Notes
Welcome to the Field Notes WikiProject, a collaboration area and group of editors interesting in bringing field notes into Wikisource for transcription, then reusing that data for scientific work. Although this project has been started as an offshoot of the Field Notes of Junius Henderson transcription project, it is our hope that other field notes will be brought into the Wikimedia Commons and Wikisource if we can demonstrate the value of Wikisource in transcribing and archiving such resources.
- To develop an easy-to-follow plan for libraries and museums to make their field notebooks available to Wikisource.
- To encourage Wikisource editors as well as external transcribers new to Wikisource to contribute in perfecting the transcription.
- To develop templates for users interested in annotations to follow in annotating field notebooks to make the data in them available for wider use.
- Field notebooks.
- Although our focus is currently in natural history (biology and paleontology) field notebooks, we realize there are many other kinds of field books (geology, ecology) and lab notebooks (chemistry, physics, etc) out there . Some of the tools developed for these projects may apply to other corpora, but we're interested in hearing what works and what doesn't.
None at the moment. Field notebooks should be categorized under Category:Field notes.
Please feel free to add yourself here, and to indicate any areas of particular interest.
