Transcribe Our Online Collections

The Revive! Transcription Project is the Waring's online portal inviting you to transcribe its historical and archival collections. As a 2015 recipient of an Express Library Digitization Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM), the Waring began the planning and the design of this project, digitizing nearly 400 handwritten theses produced by antebellum students of the Medical College of South Carolina, later merged with and named Medical College of the State of South Carolina, from the 1830s to 1860. With Revive!, we aim to produce searchable text transcriptions for handwritten manuscript and archival materials existing in our digital collections. The transcriptions that you produce through Revive! will allow us to better serve you by further enriching our collections, enhancing your searches, and by increasing your engagement with our digital materials and with us. Register for a Revive! account today, and help us Revive! our medical history collections.
