To add another diary, first you'll need to create a new Book / Document (and optionally a Person page for the author), then you'll add Pages to it.

3.6 Description: Type in a description of / introduction to the diary.
3.7 Scroll down and click the 'Save' button.
4. Add pages
(We usually create one page on the website for one day's entry in the diary. So if a page in the original handwritten diary has five entries for say 4, 5, 7, 9, and 14 July 1942, we'd create one website page for each of those dates.)
4.1 Click here to open the 'Create Page(s) from Book / Document' window. Then fill in the following fields...
4.2 Title: Leave this blank, and it will be filled in for you when you save the page.

Repeat steps 4.1 - 4.6 for each day from the diary.
