This area is for the Social Network of the Novel project. This project is an experiment in citizen science. The idea is to create an application that allows participants to read a passage and tag the characters, settings, and interactions taking place. These would then update a social network graph dynamically.

\subsubsection{ Design Examples for Crowdsourcing in the Humanities }

Most of the projects in the humanities are focused on transcription.

	\item  DIY History and U of Iowa \href{}{}
	\item  Transcribe Bentham at UCL \href{}{}
	\item  Multiple projects (e.g. What's on the menu?) at New York Public Library \href{}{}

\subsubsection{ Annotation Based Examples }

Here are some examples of projects that are using annotation based mechanics.
	\item  Genius \href{}{}
	\item  Wikipedia has a long list of web annotation projects \href{}{\_annotation}

\subsection{ Crowdsourcing Software Projects }

The Prism project is particularly interesting because it focuses on tagging using a highlighter affordance, instead of transcription which is the most common use case for most of these tools.
