Mediascapes Start-up seminar, 22 to 23 September 2016

Start-up meeting for the Cultural Heritage Mediascapes research project on participatory citizen science in museums and archives.

The aim of the Cultural Heritage Mediascapes project is to deepen our understanding of how digitization and participatory models are transforming knowledge practices in museums and archives.


GBIF Norway contributes to Mediascapes with a citizen science portal for the transcription (and data annotations) for specimens in the Norwegian Natural History herbarium collections - with focus on specimens held by the Norwegian University Museums.

Seminar slides: Crowdsourcing at the UiO Natural History Museum in Oslo (CC-BY GBIF Norway)
