Description: 

Once you’ve invited the crowd to help, how do you use what they provide? Presenters will share ideas for incorporating crowdsource-enhanced data from many sources (flickr, transcription, twitter) back into collections, along with approaches--including “whoopsies” and remaining challenges--for quality control, data discovery, data disagreement, building communities, and scalability. The session will be interactive on Twitter locally and remotely, and will include fun activities to demonstrate some of the issues and methods at play. Additional information will be made available in an open online space for viewing and editing during the session at: http://s.si.edu/16ZfZ9b
