Proofreading ConSource Documents

To help us in the editing process, when you browse ConSource resources, use the Flag or Suggest button if you see any of the following:

  • content that's inappropriate or unrelated to constitutional history
  • missing metadata (author, recipient, manuscript location information, etc. that should appear in the right column)
  • a passage that ought to be cross-referenced to a constitutional clause, topic, or another document
  • a passage for which you have an idea of a useful explanatory footnote
  • need for proofreading (note that many spelling errors are from the original text)
  • other errors

Documents with many errors may be the result of automatic conversion from a scan. Mark such documents as in-need of more thorough proofreading.
