Digital Volunteer


Dunedin Public Libraries







This is a digital volunteer position. Volunteers do not need to come to a physical location but can login from home to www.dunedin.recollect.co.nz to access the Scattered Seeds Digital Archive and choose the 'Crowdsourcing' button on the left hand side of the page. Once there, volunteers will find an explanation and guidance about how to become a digital volunteer. Cards are typed twice by two different volunteers (this is managed by the system software). If both are typed exactly the same, the data entry will be accepted. If there are differences, the submitted cards will be vetted by staff. If a volunteer is not following the online instructions he or she will be contacted by a staff member, or, a volunteer is welcome to contact the library via the online form on the Dunedin.recollect.co.nz site (Scattered Seeds) for clarification and/or further verbal instruction.
