RunCoCo on Tour

Yesterday the RunCoCo team left the dreaming spires of Oxford in bright sunshine, and floral fireworks – magnolia and other blossoms.

Today we have been training about 25 German librarians who are partnering the German National Library (die Deutsche Nationalbibliothek – DNB) to run the crowdsourcing project, “Erster Weltkrieg in Alltagsdokumenten” (The First World War in everyday documents).EWA_LOGO Online, anyone can submit family memories and photos of letters, postcards and studio portraits that relate to that War.

We have been preparing these librarians to run a series of roadshows in 4 German cities where the public will be invited to come along with their material for the team to digitise on the spot. Starting tomorrow – Frankfurt, 31 March 2011 for Europeana (funders).

Photos from the training and the submissions day to follow! We’re updating our progress on this blog and on Twitter, follow #Europeana and @RunCoCo!
