Inspired by Trove, Participation and the power of the crowd, was the title of a seminar held at the National Library on 28 February 2013. A range of speakers gave different insights to Trove.

Annie Talvé from Project Sisu spoke on Collective Intelligence proposing that 'the confluence between collective intelligence and participatory design is becoming a reality, and Trove a worthy prototype of this marriage.

Professor John Rayner investigated the connection between Science and the Australian Womens' Weekly, with particular reference to atomic energy, nuclear weapons and health science related to cigarette smoking.

Sultana Lubna Alam gave a presentation exploring crowd sourcing motivations in the GLAM (Galleries Libraries Archives and Museums) sector, focussing on the Australia Newspapers Digitisation program and Paul Hagon, Senior Web Designer at the National Library concluded the afternoon with an analysis of Trove crowd sourcing behaviour.

Their presentations are available as podcasts here.
