RunCoCo Workshop 26 May 2010:
How to Run a Community Collection Online

This training workshop was intended for anyone interested in community collections (like The Great War Archive) or working to harness a community to enrich an existing collection with tags or comments (like Galaxy Zoo). It was free of charge and open to anyone from the education/public sector. About 40 participants from across the UK took part.

A brief outline of the meeting is provided on this page as is the Programme with links to the presentations and other related resourses. A write-up from the day, with summaries of the talks, can be found on the summary page (many thanks to Emily McLoughlin).
