Right now 300,000 pages are available for browsing, but the National Archives is soliciting the help of online users to classify and tag page types and key data.

Using these tags, the curators at Operation War Diary will be able to create a detailed index about the author of the diary, the places, people, dates, weather and activities documented in each entry.

If tagging sounds like a big responsibility, don’t worry: There is a short tutorial that will walk you through the classification and tagging process! In addition to this, several users will be tagging each entry, so if you miss something, chances are that someone else will catch it.
