Pamela Wright will discuss History Hub, which is a crowdsourcing platform sponsored by the National Archives. Experts from the National Archives as well as other experts, history enthusiasts, and citizen archivists are available via the platform to help the public with their research. History Hub offers tools like discussion boards, blogs, and community pages to bring together experts and researchers interested in American history. Think of it as a one-stop shop for crowdsourcing information related to research. Lately, NARA has been working with Library of Congress and others to collaboratively provide reference to our holdings. Is this a tool that DPLA might use? Let's discuss the possibilities.
