Crowdsourcing and Community Engagement
Final Published Version
While crowdsourcing has been used in the corporate world as a way to outsource tasks to non-employees, it is increasingly being used in cultural and educational institutions for projects that seek to harness the energy and brainpower of the masses to complete specific tasks (e.g. transcription, annotation, metadata creation) more quickly and inexpensively than would otherwise be possible.
