D101 - Community-Curated Collections

10:15 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
DeAnza III (Portola)
Alexis Rossi, Director of Web Services, Internet Archive

The internet gives us powerful tools to build collections collaboratively, and all of us can benefit. This session addresses the opportunities we have to build collections beyond our organizational budgets, benefit from the subject matter expertise of people outside our fields, crowdsource the work of digitization, explore the semantic relationships between media items, facilitate large-scale data mining and research projects. Our speaker from the Internet Archive, a nonprofit library founded to preserve and make accessible all the works of humankind, discusses how it has built large collections of books, music, movies, images, software, and webpages which are viewed by more than 2 million visitors every day. She talks about the tools the Internet Archive is building that allow anyone to create collections within a library, whether individuals or institutions. Hear how these tools might benefit your organization.
