In this issue:
- Crowdsourcing Transcriptions for Fannie Hardy Eckstorm Papers
- Create Your First Video Game Workshop
1. Crowdsourcing Transcriptions for Fannie Hardy Eckstorm Papers
Images of handwritten documents in the Fannie Hardy Eckstorm collection have been posted to Digital Maine Transcription Project, which allows members of the public to transcribe significant Maine documents so they will be searchable online. More information about Eckstorm and the collection can be found in the Eckstorm Papers Finding Aid.
Anyone interested in contributing to the project can register for a free account. After registering, search for “Eckstorm” to see the files and select a page to transcribe.
2. Create Your First Video Game Workshop
Date & Time: Thursday, November 2nd, 6-7pm
Location: Fogler Library Classroom
From Candy Crush to Minecraft, we have all played a video game at one point or another. If you have ever wanted to not only play games but make them as well, then stop in to learn the basics of the professional game making software Unity.
No coding experience is necessary, and by the end of the workshop, you’ll have made your very own video game!
