Trove: Crowdsourced Project of The National Library of Australia

This Paul Hagon’s presentation describes the experience of several cultural institutions with a variety of crowdsourced projects and adds to the understanding of the trends and user behaviour patterns related to the use of online material.  The National Library of Australia has already been using crowdsourcing to enhance collection descriptions. The library search engine Trove has become a powerful discovery tool for genealogists and historians ever since millions of descriptions and text corrections have been placed by users.
