Welcome to the LibCrowds Community.
Whether you are an active volunteer or just passing through, this is the place for all of your questions, suggestions, technical issues and ideas. The LibCrowds Team, which includes developers, digital curators and language specialists, will be visiting regularly and we hope that you’ll join us in building an enthusiastic crowd-sourcing community!
Do you want to know more about how your data will be used? Are you wondering what makes crowd-sourcing enthusiasts tick? Curious about what we might do with our old card catalogues, once we’ve transformed the contents into electronic records? No question is too big or too small and we look forward to hearing all of them.
If you think there’s something that we could improve, let us know. LibCrowds has been developed with open collaboration in mind, so whether your suggestions relate to the LibCrowds theme or the technology involved, it would be great to hear from you.
As with any technology, particularly experimental ones, from time to time things can go wrong. If you do notice any technical issues it would be really helpful if you could post about them here. We’ll investigate, keep you updated and try to get things fixed as quickly as possible. With your help we can make sure that LibCrowds is as robust and successful as it can be.
Do you have an idea about a future crowd-sourcing project? Perhaps you have done something clever with our open datasets. Or, maybe you have developed something of your own and would like to encourage feeback or participation from the community. LibCrowds is all about experimentation and innovation and whatever it is that has you inspired, we would love to hear about it.
While we have presented a few of the purposes of the LibCrowds Community, we wouldn’t want to limit you. This is your community and we hope that it will evolve as our crowd-sourcing experiments continue. We look forward to you joining us on this experimental, crowd-sourcing inspired journey!
