Like the idea of crowdsourcing but not sure it's right for you? Are you able to digitize materials but need more help preparing files for access?  Wish you had a volunteer program to let folks work directly with your collections?  ME TOO, and I’ve got something that just might help you out.In this lightning session, I'll walk you through a volunteer program at the Minnesota Historical Society that is designed to be flexible, affordable, and move terabytes of unprocessed scans to fully-indexed online access.  We’ll talk about digitization partnerships, image processing, metadata and indexing, quality control, access platforms, working with volunteers, process improvement, and more!
