Projects like In the Spotlight http://playbills.libcrowds.com encourage people to pay close attention to historic playbills while transcribing text to help make them more discoverable. Crowdsourcing cultural heritage tasks can create new relationships between cultural organisations and the public, while creating moments of curiosity that help people understand the past and present. Isn't it time you tried crowdsourcing?

A provocation for the British Library Labs 'Building Library Labs around the world' event, with folk from national, state and university libraries with existing or planned digital 'Labs-style' teams.

A modest proposal: crowdsourcing in cultural heritage benefits us all.

  1. 1. A modest proposal: crowdsourcing in cultural heritage benefits us all. Dr. Mia Ridge, digitalresearch@bl.uk BL Labs workshop, September 2018
  2. 2. Premise 1: 'fake news' is a menace The world needs more critical (cynical) thinkers. Curiosity enabled through crowdsourcing can be a gateway to the 'five C's of historical thinking: change and continuity over time, causality, context, complexity, and contingency
  3. 3. Premise 2: budgets never match needs Crowdsourcing can help make the 'unfindable' backlog findable (and used) (Assuming you can digitise collections in the first place)
  4. 4. Premise 3: budgets will always be at risk GLAMs need a wide range of advocates. Crowdsourcing can create vocal fans of organisations and their collections.
  5. 5. Put your collections in the spotlight! Thank you for listening. http://playbills.libcrowds.com/ Thanks to: Alex Mendes, Christian Algar, Beatrice Ashton-Lelliott and our 1600+ volunteers
