Digital Paxton: Digital Collection, Critical Edition, and Teaching Platform


Welcome to Digital Paxton transcriptions. At the bottom of this page you may access about three-dozen fully or partially transcribed pamphlets, broadsides, manuscripts, and political cartoons. All transcriptions will appear as fully-searchable Annotations.

Given the scope of materials in Digital Paxton, we invite visitors to contribute transcriptions using our FromThePage transcription site. We are currently soliciting transcriptions of our Friendly Association manuscripts. You may contribute as many or as few transcriptions as you wish--you may even transcribe as a guest! Given that our transcription conventions differ slightly from those of FromThePage, we encourage visitors to familiarize themselves with our best practices.

To support the effort, Marie Pellissier, Kelly Schmidt, and Kate Johnson, graduate students at Loyola University Chicago, have collected some transcription best practices and created a short guide to using FromThePage. You may access both reference guides by simply following the path listed below Contents.
