Include transcriptions in the National Archives Catalog

Should transcriptions from the National Archives Transcription Pilot Project be automatically included in the National Archives Catalog?

  1. I'm curious why this would be a bad idea. I can see (and have)concerns that "automatically" be better defined and that if raw transcriptions were part of searches in the catalog should be clearly identified as such and give the user the ability to exclude tanscription data from results if desired. Does anyone else share those concerns?
