A free one-day conference held at OUCS, University of Oxford on 26th May 2011. Our 'Beyond' conference this year celebrates the joys and challenges of community collections. It was hosted by the RunCoco project and sponsored by JISC. The conference will be of interest to learning technologists, librarians, museums, community groups, archivists and researchers.
Through 'crowdsourced' community collections the general public or members of a particular group are invited to contribute to a project by uploading their own content or adding information to existing resources. This event was an opportunity to reflect upon the range of models of crowdsourcing and community engagement projects in higher education.
