This project encourages community members to contribute to library collections by creating films, writing, stories, pictures and other web content that draw upon library resources as well as their own.
Common tools available across libraries will allow community members to contribute their knowledge and expertise to library material and share it with others, or to create mash-ups of online content. Examples can be seen in the 2011 Libraryhack competition.
