The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has lunched a call for volunteers to digitalized around 100 telescope logbooks records collected during almost a century.

The telescope logbooks record vital information associated with a 100-year-long effort to record images of the sky. By transcribing logbook text to put those historical observations in context, volunteers can help to unlock hidden discoveries.
To participate in this new "citizen scientist" initiative, interested parties are invited to sign up at https://transcription.si.edu/browse?filter=owner:11
