American Alpine Jounrna and Accidents in North American Climbing


The American Alpine Club needs your help! The project to digitize and provide online access to a completely electronic American Alpine Journal, Accidents in North American Climbing, and Alpina Americana is ongoing and in need of more volunteers. Volunteers help:

  • Correct articles.
  • Tag articles with route and geographic information.
  • Tag articles with author information.
  • Tag articles with climbing terms.
  • Create new route and geographic information related to article content.
  • Create html tables for articles.
  • Add images and media to articles (Front Range volunteers only, please).

We need volunteers who have a reliable internet connect and computer. Volunteers get bonus points if they have data entry and/or database experience, good knowledge of international climbing areas, and/or experience creating html tables.

If you value the information here on the AAC’s publications website and want to make it even better, please CONTACT US to express your interest in volunteering. In your message please provide your name and any relevant skills you may be able to contribute to the project.
