In an effort to make the correspondence of Dr. John Torrey more accessible to researchers, the New York Botanical Garden initiated a project called Digitizing and Transcribing the John Torrey Papers: Natural Science and Exploration in 19th Century America. DHPSNY's webinar Stories from the Field: Transcribing the John Torrey Papers at the New York Botanical Garden highlights the process of this project; including the grant received, project goals, staffing, crowdsourcing process, and some of the pitfalls.

On September 14, our antiracism education series facilitator, Aria Camaione-Lind, was joined by Jordan Jace of the Archives Partner Trust and Lavada Nahon of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation for the DHPSNY webinar Antiracist Approaches to Collections Accessibility.
