Volunteers are welcome to assist with a wide variety of tasks. People who live near Wheaton, Illinois can help with a one-time effort or an ongoing project. Those from farther away may be able to live on campus while working in the Archives.
Some projects supporting the Archives Department can be performed offsite. For example, recordings of digitized lectures can be transcribed; historic information can be keyed into spreadsheets; Web searches can be performed; and documents can be translated from Russian, French, German, Swedish, and other languages.
The librarians and archivists of the Theosophical Society in America have established a wiki encyclopedia called the Theosophy Wiki.
Photos and other unique items from the archives are being added to this base of knowledge, and editors from around the world contribute articles on theosophy and all aspects of the theosophical movement.
