Utah State University Libraries (USU) employs community-based crowdsourcing metadata practices that provide in-depth, collaborative strategies that go beyond more commonly used collecting methods. Improved metadata quality is a result of working closely with donors, community scholars, students, and the public to describe cultural heritage collections fairly and thoroughly. This article provides an overview of successful ways to collaborate with those outside of traditional library units to create more diverse, equitable and inclusive descriptions of archival resources.
