Where do I find project instructions?

A few weeks ago we moved all project articles to the Support Center.  This change was made in conjunction with the wiki being retired.

At that time we also updated the links for projects from the keying tool and the dashboard to go to those articles.  Since then we have updated the Project Instructions in the keying tool, added message boards for each project and updated the help links in the keying tool.

The project instructions include project specific instructions in addition to the standard field helps that follow the General Keying Standards , name, date, location, etc.  In the field helps you will find key words that will help you locate the data on the image and additional helps, such as month names in other languages.  Along with the written instructions you will find sample images which are marked to show where field data should be found.

Because these instructions are so important as you index we have tried to make them simple to understand and of course easy to find!
