NEH Awards Cooperative Agreement to Dartmouth College and University of Maryland for Best Practices in Crowdsourcing Workshop

“Engaging the Public: Best Practices for Crowdsourcing Across the Disciplines,” which will be hosted by the University of Maryland in May 2015, will investigate how “crowdsourcing” works as an effective means for generating knowledge and connecting the public with cultural heritage resources.  By bringing experts from the sciences together with their colleagues in the humanities, the workshop will seek to build intellectual and networking bridges between crowdsourced projects across disciplines and investigate how projects across the disciplines can inform each other. The workshop will examine concerns such as how institutions might best adopt and employ crowdsourcing strategies for increasing public engagement, integrating data into existing collections, and increasing knowledge in the humanities and related domains.
