This is a very long shot, but --- Would anyone like to try their hand at making a subject index for one of the US Mint fair copy books that have been digitized? This would involve a simple table showing a page number and subjects mentioned on that page. Most content is routine - notices of bullion or cash transfer, employees hired/fired and so forth. The volumes are commonly 500 (!) pages, so this is not a trivial pursuit in either time or concentration. My PDF files are 650 meg. These could also be examined on-line via NNP.

The subject index can then be paired with the volume in NNP so that users can search by the contents of a volume and not have to read every page,

Here's a short example:
