The US National Archives subtitling project will end on September 24, 2016. We want to thank everyone who's contributed to our mission to make our content more accessible and searchable. It's been amazing to see us band together and make this project a reality. We hope to be able to include these contributions in our National Archives Catalog, https://catalog.archives.gov/.

The U.S. National Archives is the nation's record keeper. Our mission is to safeguard and preserve these records of our Government, ensuring that the people can discover, use and learn from this documentary heritage.

World War I and World War II films:
The National Archives received special funding to digitize, preserve, and make accessible World War I and World War II films and photographs. A major part of this project is the engagement of citizen archivist, including the team that contributes tags and captions on Amara. This crowdsourcing effort makes these important records more accessible to different audiences, creates an awareness among new stakeholders, and educates team members as they contribute to the project. Two projects have been created in Amara to help our team find these films. The "World War I and World War II films" project encourages the transcription and translation of traditional audiovisual films from that era, while the "World War I Silent Films to be Tagged" project encourages users to tag persons, places, and things in a creative interpretation of Amara. To view the films that have been digitized through Amara, visit the US National Archives YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLugwVCjzrJsWIM3pm2EAxypQnwI9g51Gt
