Two birds, one stone: Bridging cultural heritage collections with crowds and niches

Crowdsourcing is a valuable source of data and metadata in cultural heritage. In this workshop speakers from Naturalis, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the Rijksmuseum will provide their insights on crowdsourcing by discussing the following points:


  • Relevance: Why is crowdsourcing relevant to my institution
  • Tooling: Which tools do we use
  • Lessons learned: What are the lessons we learned
Sustainability is one of the problems encountered by many crowdsourcing projects. In the fourth talk we discuss how we approached this problem in the DigiBird project, which integrates multiple initiatives and shows how results can be leveraged for collection integration.

Date & venue
14:00-17:00 Monday 31st of October, at Sound and Vision, Media Parkboulevard 1, Hilversum.
