Dec: Scoping and Funding Crowdsourcing Projects (WebJunction)

Thursday, Dec. 11 (10-11 am Mountain)
Crowdsourcing techniques are increasingly utilized by organizations and institutions—including libraries and museums—seeking to gather vast amounts of new knowledge and participation from online contributors. In this fast-paced, hour-long session with funders, you'll learn how to pitch your crowdsourcing project ideas to funding agencies. You’ll also hear a short recap of our groups’ first webinar Crowdsourcing 101 by CCLA Research Fellow, Christina Manzo. Our speakers include program officers from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Learn which funders could be right for your project, what kinds of topics and questions interest these agencies, and how to build on existing crowdsourcing resources.
