    Here's a libraries' created basic guide to using the reference manager Mendeley. Have you tried Mendeley yet?

    thanks for this. we're using mendeley for a working group right now. it took a little while to get used to, but definitely has potential for sharing resources. will have to check out the highlighting and annotation tools.

University of Iowa - Civil War Diaries Crowdsourcing Transcription Project - 2 views

  •  
    This reminded me of Cole Camplese's comments on the instant crowdsourcing of video recording the sessions at the 2011 TLT Symposium, Clay Shirky's example of that socially-written mathematics (?) paper, and a bit of Chris Long's posts on using digital tools in research.
  •  
    The socially-written paper was about "P vs NP", which is a computer science/mathematics problem. A fairly simple explanation is here: http://www.claymath.org/millennium/P_vs_NP/

    But yeah - crowdsourcing stuff like this is great when you have a community of people who really care about it. It's like having an army of amateur archeologists.
