|Volunteer Editor||Multicultural History Society of Ontario||Call for Volunteer Editors
The Multicultural History Society of Ontario (MHSO) is a not-for-profit educational institution and archive dedicated to preserving and making accessible Ontario’s multicultural history. It has amassed the most extensive collection in Canada of archival materials related to the immigrant and ethnic experience. Fifty-four different ethnocultural communities are represented in the collection. In addition to personal and institutional textual records, the collection includes over 9,000 hours of oral history interviews and approximately 60,000 historical photographs.
The MHSO is currently in the process of creating a digital archive. Once completed, the archive will feature oral history interviews and historical photographs from the MHSO collection, augmented by contextual commentary and innovative educational programming.
At the beginning of the project, volunteers from throughout Ontario were recruited to transcribe interviews, and now, in year three of the project, they have completed over 500 transcripts. The MHSO is in need of experienced editors to review these transcripts.
Although the Society is located in Toronto, volunteer editors can work from anywhere in the province. Interviews and transcripts are accessible electronically. Days and hours of volunteering are flexible.
