  6. 6. 6 UK SoundMap • In 2009 British Library sound archive staff began tests for a new kind of field recording project to aggregate user-generated digital audio content using mobile phones. Named the UK SoundMap, the project represents a radical departure from the more traditional, curator-led professional archival practices we were used to. • The UK SoundMap uses an informal community of mobile phone users (via Audioboo) to capture and describe their environmental sounds, then enable near-instant public sharing on a dedicated website: in effect, contributors as curator-publishers. •
  7. 7. 7 UK SoundMap: technical, legal and ethical issues • poor sound quality, particularly wind noise and low quality recording equipment • deliberate or inadvertent contributions of inappropriate recordings (e.g. copyrighted music or spoken performances, invasions of privacy, derogatory or rude language) • inconsistent and missing metadata quality • irrelevant recordings (e.g. outside the geographical scope or subject matter)
  8. 8. 8 Book Card catalogues • First batch (or “drawer”) of the Pinyin card catalogue was released to the public on June 8th with 1,278 cards and all tasks were completed (meaning three or more individuals looked at every card and attempted to make a match) just over two and half weeks later on June 24th 2015. • We are now working with our colleagues in metadata services to integrate them into Aleph

  12. 12. 12 Georeferencer The British Library began a project to crowdsource the georeferencing of its scanned historic mapping in 2011 by partnering with Klokan Technologies. Over 8,000 maps have already been "placed" by participants checked for accuracy and approved for reviewers. We are currently on the sixth release, which features over 50,000 maps from the 17th, 18th, and 19th-century book illustrations on Flickr Video explanation:
  13. 13. 13 Pin-a-tale Pin-a-Tale was an online crowd-sourcing initiative that sought to connect our individual experiences of writing and place, and pin them to a searchable map. It accompanied the British Library exhibition “Writing Britain: Wastelands to Wonderlands”, 11 May – 25 September 2012 We asked people to choose a literary work from any period and in any form that relates to a specific location in the British and Irish Isles and to tell us how the author captured the spirit of the place. map.aspx
  14. 14. 14 Transcribe Bentham A participatory project based at University College London. Its aim is to engage the public in the online transcription of original and unstudied manuscript papers written by Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) The UCL Bentham Papers and the British Library's Bentham material have all been digitised and made available via Transcribe Bentham for crowdsourcing. The manuscripts have been reunited (digitally) for the first time since Bentham's death, thereby creating a free-to-access historical and philosophical resource of great significance.
