In the University of Alaska's Rasmuson library there is a significant unpublished manuscript about Kamchatka by Кири́лл Тимофе́евич Хле́бников. I find Russian cursive challenging to read, so I copied the manuscript and uploaded it to WikiSource so that the text could be transcribed. Then I learned the Russian WikiSource has stricter rules about unpublished documents than the English WikiSource; novel research by notable authors is disallowed. The content was quickly marked for deletion.
What other tools or resources exist online for collaboratively transcribing Russian manuscripts? I specify collaborative and online, because hiring a literate individual to copy out the text might be prohibitively expensive.
