Become a Volunteer

The Encyclopedia of Arkansas Project needs volunteers in a number of areas. Please mark the areas in which you would like to volunteer and give us any information that might help in assigning duties: when available, need to work at home/can come into the Encyclopedia offices, areas of expertise, etc. Volunteers will be recognized in all versions of the Encyclopedia.

Volunteer Opportunities (check all that you are willing to do):

* indicates required information

Fact Checking: verifying the factual information in Encyclopedia entries. This is our most pressing need. Fact checking involves using reliable sources to confirm the facts in an entry, such as dates, names, titles of awards and institutions, etc. The editorial staff will provide you with a list of standard resources, but fact checking will not be limited to them.
Reviewing Entries: reading entries in your area of expertise and providing feedback on the content.
Office Work: basic tasks such as filing, stuffing envelopes, making copies, etc. This will necessitate coming into the Encyclopedia offices.
Publicity: spreading the word about the Encyclopedia Project at conferences, meetings, and other events around the state.
Fundraising: helping to raise money by contacting potential donors or writing grants.
