Hello, my name is Christina Manzo and I work with the Crowdsourcing
Consortium for Libraries and Archives. As part of our outreach, we
will be hosting our second webinar on December 11 at 12pm EDT.  This
would be a great opportunity for someone looking to get involved in
crowdsourcing, but is unsure about how to make the first step, or for
someone curious about current crowdsourcing projects from around the
world!

Thank you!

Christina Manzo
Research Fellow, CCLA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Institute of Museum and Library Services-Funded Crowdsourcing
Consortium for Libraries and Archives to Host Second, Funding-Based
Webinar

Scoping and Funding Crowdsourcing Projects

December 11, 2014 at 12pm EST

HANOVER, N.H. – December 9, 2014 –The Crowdsourcing Consortium for
Libraries and Archives (CCLA) announces its second in a series of
international webinars, titled ‘Scoping and Funding Crowdsourcing
Projects,’ scheduled for December 11 at 12 pm EDT. Crowdsourcing in
the humanities is an emerging new area for museums, libraries, and
archives. The CCLA was formed earlier this year with an Institute of
Museum and Library Services (IMLS) award, with the goal to unite
leading-edge technology groups in libraries and archives as well as
humanities scholars and scholars from the sciences in a conversation
about best practices, shared toolsets, and strategies for using
crowdsourcing.

The CCLA project was initiated by Mary Flanagan, Sherman Fairchild
Distinguished Professor in Digital Humanities at Dartmouth, who as
founding director of Tiltfactor has extensive experience with
crowdsourcing and developing engaging games for prosocial causes. The
CCLA is engaging top experts in the field through a series of regional
U.S. meetings, the most recent of which occurred in Boston this last
September. A culminating national meeting will be held in Washington,
DC, in May 2015.

The two planned webinars are part of the first year of the CCLA
initiative and will feature internationally recognized experts in
crowdsourcing. The first CCLA Webinar, "Crowdsourcing 101:
Fundamentals and Case Studies," was held in late October and had over
180 registered participants from 40 states, Canada, the United
Kingdom, and Australia.

The December 2014 webinar, moderated and hosted by OCLC, will include
the presentations by Sharon Leon  Director of Public Projects at the
Center for History and New Media and Associate Professor in History
and Art History at George Mason University; Robert Horton  IMLS
Associate Deputy Director for Library Services and Brett Bobley
Director and Chief Information Officer for the National Endowment for
the Humanities. Participants will learn how to pick the funding
organization that is right for their projects, and how to then best
pitch their ideas to those funders.

‘Scoping and Funding Crowdsourcing Projects’ is free and open to the
public. For more information about participating in the webinar and to
