Presentation 1
Decentralized Labor, Centralized Authority, Distributed Data: The Getty Vocabularies as Crowdsourcing
A critical examination of the history of, and contemporary practices in, crowdsourcing reveals that the Getty Vocabularies are (unofficially) a crowdsourcing project and, furthermore, present a model for other GLAM crowdsourcing projects that can ameliorate the potentially negative implications of the practice.
Presenters: Melissa Gill, Nathaniel Deines

Presentation 2
Catholic, Crowdfunded and Collaborative: A Unique Approach to Newspaper Digitization
Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA), aims to provide access to newspapers, in this case to all Catholic newspapers published in North America, both newspapers in the public domain and in copyright. But the CRRA takes a very different approach to implement its goal through crowdfunding and collaboration.
Presenters: Frederick Zarndt, Patricia Lawton, Jeff Moyer

Presentation 3
Snapshot - The Man in the Machine: Digital Labor Ethics for Academic Research
The online labor market Mechanical Turk presents new opportunities for research at scale. Yet librarians and researchers are also challenged to engage ethically with this globally dispersed workforce. This session explores digital labor ethics for academic research, and discusses librarians’ role in facilitating ethical inquiry into online labor services.
Presenters: Scott Young, Sara Mannheimer

Presentation 4
Snapshot - Everybody's a Comedian: A Discussion of Copyright Protection and Black Twitter
It has been argued that most tweets are inconsequential and not worthy of copyright protection because of their subject matter and brevity. In this presentation I will discuss two possible theories granting an exception for “Black Twitter” due to its relationship to both black comedy and hip hop.
Presenter: Tamara Townsend
