The Vele Handen Project aims at the development of a website for making archival records accessible by means of crowdsourcing. It’s about management of the crowd and how it landed. Afterwards there will be a discussion about crouwdsourcing do’s and dont’s. Ellen Fleurbaay will talk about the The Vele Handen Project of the municipal archive of Amsterdam. It aims at the development of a website for making archival records accessible by means of crowdsourcing. These ideas about crowd motivation are reflected in the design of the Vele Handen website. In the summer of 2011a series of user tests has been performed to research the crowds response to the platform. The results will be input to a discussion. Ellen is also highly interested in the opinion of the participants of the DISH conference.
