CT-T8: Crowdsourced Metadata

3:00 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.
Kenn Bicknell, Digital Resources Librarian, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, USA

Get an overview of how libraries, archives, and museums in Europe and the United States are engaging users in content creation to supplement digital resources. Memory organizations are increasingly relying on both “passion” and “expertise” from public participation for description and access points for digitized assets. This talk compares public transcription projects to crowdsourced identification work for digital resources and reviews crowdsourced mapping endeavors. It provides tips for smaller collections or user groups to inspire local communities, build and strengthen a userbase, raise awareness, and create conversation.
