This paper describes an ongoing project to enable user-editing on an existing online database of about 120,000 British newspaper cartoons at the University of Kent. It describes the cartoon catalogue itself and then describes how the online search website has been extended to allow users to edit catalogue records in a way that should be both safe and economical. Finally, it discusses the next stage of the project, which is to experiment with ways to encourage users to become contributors.
