Greetings All,

RE: Crowdsourcing Basics: What is crowdsourcing, and will it work for 
your collection? - the Milwaukee Public Museum experience.

WHEN: Wednesday 20 September at 12 PM EDT, 11 AM CDT.
WHERE: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/room (Headsets for best experience!).
WHO: Presenters: Alyssa Caywood, Collection Digitization Project 
Manager, Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM) and Julia Colby, Vertebrate & 
Invertebrate Collections Manager MPM; Moderator: Elizabeth (Libby) 
Ellwood, Research Fellow - LaBrea Tar Pits, WeDigBio organizer (and

Crowdsourced transcription projects are used by collection managers 
across the country to fulfill their data entry capture needs. Intrigued, 
but not sure crowdsourcing is right for you and your collection? Our 
discussion will cover evaluating your collection and planning a 
crowdsource transcription project, plus suggest platforms and tips for 
evaluating which platform might work for you. We will share what we’ve 
learned from crowdsourcing transcriptions for our own collections and 
from hosting a WeDigBio event in 2016. Join us to explore whether 
crowdsourcing is a tool that you should add to your data management 
toolbox. And, find out more about ways to participate in WeDigBio 2017 

Please share -- this is crowdsourcing afterall!

See you Wednesday,
Deborah Paul, on behalf of Alyssa, Julia, and Libby
