Crowdsourced Data Survey
Researchers at the University of Maryland are recruiting cultural heritage practitioners and community-based cultural heritage stewards for a survey regarding past, present, or paused crowdsourced transcription projects in their libraries, archives, museums or community cultural heritage organization. This research project is led by Assistant Professor Victoria Van Hyning at the University of Maryland, College of Information Studies (iSchool) titled “Crowdsourced Data: Accuracy, Accessibility, and Authority (CDAAA).” CDAAA is a three-year project funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (full proposal available here) that aims to understand whether LAM organizations (institutional or community-run) can get transcription data into their core discovery platforms, such as Content Management Systems (CMSs), and if the transcriptions are discoverable and accessible to people who are print-disabled (i.e. Blind, have dyslexia, or other print-related disabilities for which they utilize screen reader software to hear digital information read aloud).
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and participants will receive a $10 incentive following completion, which will be processed through Tango, an electronic payments platform. This survey will close on April 7, 2023. The CDAAA team appreciates your time and consideration for this survey. Please contact PI Van Hyning and her team at CDAAA@umd.edu if you have any questions about this survey or the project itself.
