The Library of Congress Starts a Crowdsourcing Program

The Library of Congress (LC) launched a crowdsourcing program so the public can help “improve discovery and access across our diverse collections through transcription and tagging.” It is looking “for people who are ready to be inspired and engaged by the stories inside the Library’s incredible collections—whether they connect with extraordinary historical events or the recognizably mundane.”

According to the LC, “The program is grounded in what we’ve learned through our previous experiences with participatory projects at the Library, including image description in Flickr and our newspaper captioning pilot Beyond Words.” It is also designed to exemplify the LC’s FY2019–2023 Strategic Plan.
