Co-Lab Military Challenges

Just in time for Remembrance Day, Library and Archives Canada has added two military Challenges.

Women in the War challenge invites you to identify servicewomen and nursing sisters who served in Canada and abroad between 1942 and 1945. The selected photographs depict them at work and play, on ships, in kitchens and libraries, playing sports and dancing. In many cases, the word “unidentified” is part of the title of the image. A start has been made on the 70 images, 6% need review, none are complete.

First World War Posters challenge invites you to transcribe, tag, translate and describe these 125 images selected from 4,000 posters collected during and immediately after the Great War. Transcription is 55% complete; a further 26% need review.
