Beyond Collections: Crowdsourcing for public engagement conference 2011

2. Beyond Collections: Crowdsourcing for public engagement

A free one-day conference held at OUCS, University of Oxford on 26th May 2011

Our 'Beyond' conference this year will celebrate the joys and challenges of community collections. It will be hosted by the RunCoco project and sponsored by JISC. The conference will be of interest to learning technologists, librarians, museums, community groups, archivists and researchers.

Through 'crowdsourced' community collections the general public or members of a particular group are invited to contribute to a project by uploading their own content or adding information to existing resources. This event will be an opportunity to reflect upon the range of models of crowdsourcing and community engagement projects in higher education.

We welcome colleagues who are involved in digital and community collection projects and our friends and contributors to LTG's annual 'Shock and Beyond' events.

See what happened on the day! The event has been captured in our blog and as podcasts (audio and video of presentations).
