17. RunCoCo Beyond Collections

The Beyond Collections conference, organised by RunCoCo, explored the different challenges which face crowdsourced and community projects. It featured a series of presentations by successful community collection projects as well as a panel of experts, practitioners and policy makers. The presenters and delegates enjoyed the venue and found the day ‘inspirational’.

The conference was open to participants who are interested in community collections (like The Great War Archive and Community Archives Wales) or working to harness a community to enrich an existing collection with tags or comments (like Galaxy Zoo and the Zooniverse).

Reports from the day including audio and video podcasts are available.
