"Crowdsourcing Metrics of Digital Collections"

Posted in Research Tools, Scholarly Metrics on October 12th, 2015 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

LIBER Quarterly has released "Crowdsourcing Metrics of Digital Collections" by Tuula Pääkkönen.

Here's an excerpt:

In the National Library of Finland (NLF) there are millions of digitized newspaper and journal pages, which are openly available via the public website http://digi.kansalliskirjasto.fi. To serve users better, last year the front end was completely overhauled with its main aim in crowdsourcing features, e.g., by giving end-users the opportunity to create digital clippings and a personal scrapbook from the digital collections. But how can you know whether crowdsourcing has had an impact? How much crowdsourcing functionalities have been used so far? Did crowdsourcing work? In this paper the statistics and metrics of a recent crowdsourcing effort are analysed across the different digitized material types (newspapers, journals, ephemera). The subjects, categories and keywords given by the users are analysed to see which topics are the most appealing. Some notable public uses of the crowdsourced article clippings are highlighted.
