What is Crowdsourcing and How Can it Help us Answer Questions in the Humanities?
Geoff Groberg, a web developer in the ZSR Library, will present an informal workshop about crowdsourcing. We’ll talk about crowd-sourcing principles, look at some good (and maybe bad) examples of crowd-sourced humanities projects, and Geoff will share lessons learned from a crowd-sourced transcription project he built for the Lee Library at Brigham Young University.
Join us on Friday, November 14 from 2:00–3:30 p.m. in Reynolda 301.
