Sourcery, a document delivery app, connects researchers around the globe with on-site researchers at some of the world’s richest collections of primary sources. But using a sharing economy app to solve problems for researchers elicits now well-rehearsed critiques of the “gig” economy. Recognizing issues of labor equity and responsible regulation, Sourcery will apply the lessons (positive and negative) and technologies of the sharing economy to meet the needs and concerns of both humanities researchers and archives professionals.
