In order to promote and collaborate with the knowledge of our historical documents, the National Library of Peru organized the "Transcriptón: recovering our manuscript memory", an event that consisted of two Paleography workshops, and the opening of a digital platform to practice in the reading and transcription of ancient manuscripts that the library protects. In this way, citizens became an important force for the recovery of the nation's heritage, a temporary community around this activity, the results of which will then be included in a digital repository available to all.
