Missouri Botanical Garden aims to improve access to digital texts through online gaming
Date:11/4/2013

ly recently has it been used for more practical purposes," said Trish Rose-Sandler, data project coordinator in the Center for Biodiversity Informatics at the Missouri Botanical Garden and data analyst for the Biodiversity Heritage Library. "Combined with crowdsourcing, it can be a very efficient way to harness large numbers of users to complete a task."

Benefits from the project include both improved access to content in the largest open-access repository in biodiversity, the Biodiversity Heritage Library, and the demonstration of novel and more cost-effective approaches to generating searchable texts within the broader digital library community.

Teams from all four institutions will work with a professional software developer to design the gaming application needed for the project. Rose-Sandler will be responsible for the overall coordination of the project. Learn more about project details at http://biodivlib.wikispaces.com/Purposeful+Gaming.
