I had the opportunity to attend a workshop on crowdsourcing last week run by the Crowdsourcing Consortium (, which is attempting to rationalize the space for libraries & archives. Those on these lists may find both the news of the consortium and the survey, below, to be of interest. - Tom

 Dear Colleagues,

The IMLS-funded Crowdsourcing Consortium for Libraries and Archives (CCLA) needs your help!
  Were conducting a *quick* survey to gain greater insights about the key challenges faced by libraries and archives in designing and implementing crowdsourcing initiatives.  Responses to the survey will directly inform national conversations about crowdsourcing
 and help shape the direction of the CCLA.  Wed love you to offer your own unique insights!

You can access the survey here:

Please forward this message to any individuals, groups, or listservs who have an interest
 in crowdsourcing for libraries and archives. 

Thanks in advance for your help!
Mary Flanagan, for the CCLA
