    What happens to my transcriptions in Crowd?

      How will the transcriptions I create in Crowd be used and what does the Library of Congress do with them?  Is there any way to access them afterwards?

          The data contributed by volunteers like you can be used in many different ways. We are giving back to our community by making this data public. All contributions to this application are released into the public domain. Anyone is free to use this data set in any way they want. The data produced by volunteers is also free to reuse. If you need help accessing the data or want to share news of your research with the crowd.loc.gov community, please contact the Community Managers at crowd@loc.gov. The transcriptions produced on crowd.loc.gov will typically be published in the Library catalog on loc.gov within a year of a Campaign's completion.
