This page contains all of the open datasets collected from, and images used within, the experimental crowdsourcing projects hosted on this platform. Everything on this page is made available under CC0, meaning that it can be used without any copyright restrictions. BL Labs are very keen for these materials to be used in innovative ways to further research into new technologies. For instance, the digitised catalogue cards used in our Convert-a-Card projects might prove useful for testing pattern recognition applications such as multi-lingual and hand-writing OCR technologies.

Visit the LibCrowds Community if you have any further enquiries, or would simply like to tell us about how you've made use of the data.

The open datasets provided on this page are updated several times an hour.
