Crowdsourcing Smithsonian Collections: Developing and Maintaining the Smithsonian Transcritption Center and the Digital Volunteer CommunityCaitlin Haynes
During this session, I will discuss how the Smithsonian’s crowdsourcing project- The Transcription Center- was developed and why, and how we’ve continued to evolve the project over time. How did we build our digital volunpeer community and how do we keep them engaged? How do we engage with our internal Smithsonian units and partners to keep projects updated and ongoing? What lessons have we learned and what do we still hope to accomplish?
