  1. 1. Crowdsourcing in the Cultural Sector: approaches, challenges and issues Mia Ridge, @mia_out Digital Curator, British Library Crowd-sourcing, Co-creation and Co-curation in the Cultural Sector Scottish Network on Digital Cultural Resources Evaluation Glasgow, December 2015

  3. 3. What is crowdsourcing? Crowdsourcing (Jeff Howe and Mark Robinson, Wired, 2006): 'taking a function once performed by employees and outsourcing it to an undefined (and generally large) network of people in the form of an open call' Or, as Clay Shirky's cognitive surplus, 'the spare processing power of millions of human brains‘ Or, simply, volunteering online
  4. 4. Crowdsourcing in cultural heritage Asking the public to help with tasks that contribute to a shared, significant goal or research interest related to cultural heritage collections or knowledge. The activities and/or goals should be inherently rewarding.
