Lightning Round: Not Quite Crowdsourcing

By Sarah Barsness

Abstract

Like the idea of crowdsourcing but not sure it\u27s right for you? Are you able to digitize materials but need more help preparing files for access? Wish you had a volunteer program to let folks work directly with your collections? ME TOO, and I’ve got something that just might help you out.In this lightning session, I\u27ll walk you through a volunteer program at the Minnesota Historical Society that is designed to be flexible, affordable, and move terabytes of unprocessed scans to fully-indexed online access. We’ll talk about digitization partnerships, image processing, metadata and indexing, quality control, access platforms, working with volunteers, process improvement, and more
