Crowd-based appraisal and description of archival records at the State Archives Baden-Württemberg is a 2014 conference paper written in English by Naumann K., Ziwes F.-J. and published in Archiving 2014 - Final Program and Proceedings.

[edit] Abstract

Appraisal and description are core processes at historical archives. This article gives an account of innovative methodologies in this field using crowd-sourced information to (1st) identify which files are of interest for the public, (2nd) enable agency staff to extract and transfer exactly those files selected for permanent retention and (3rd) ease the description and cataloguing of the transferred objects. It defines the extent of outsourcing used at the State Archives (Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg LABW), describes case studies and touches issues of change management. Data sources are government databases and geodatabases, commercial data on court decisions, the name tags of German Wikipedia, and bio-bibliographical metadata of the State Libraries and the German National Library.
