How to work collaboratively
There are different ways to contribute to Layers of London.
- You can choose to work individually adding records and collections.
- You can also work in a team with other people that are also interested in the same topic. You might be a voluntary organisation or organisation with more than one member. You can then work on a collection together.
- You can also choose to make a open collection. This means you can start a collection on a topic such as 'Medieval Croydon' and then anyone who wants to also contribute to this collection so this becomes a open collaborative collection.
You can access these options by going to 'Your profile':
From here, click the 'Teams' tab:
Here you have the option to see what teams you are in, you can apply to join teams that are open to collaborative working or you can create a new team.
If you choose to create a new team you will see this page:
From here you can invite team-mates to join you via email.
