The National Library of Wales uses the IIIF standards extensively to give access to it’s material including Photographs, Painting, Newspapers, Journals and Archives. The NLW is now looking to make use of its IIIF collections to engage users, improve discovery and create research datasets through crowdsourcing. The Library started with IIIF and crowdsourcing with the Cynefin Map geo-referencing system (http://cynefin.archiveswales.org.uk/) and then developed bespoke volunteering projects using the SimpleAnnotationServer (https://github.com/glenrobson/SimpleAnnotationServer) and Mirador (http://projectmirador.org/). Lessons learned from these projects lead the NLW to seek a more general purpose crowdsourcing solution that worked with a variety of collections but relied on IIIF and Web Annotations. The NLW is working with Digirati to develop a solution on top of Omeka-S and the NLW hopes to go live with three projects; a photograph collection, a set of archival records and a set of printed volumes. This talk will discuss the lessons learned through the development and operation of these crowdsourcing projects and also gives some examples of how the data generated can be used as research datasets.
