Metadata Games


Metadata Games is a digital game platform for gathering data on photo, audio, and moving image artifacts. The platform entices players to visit archives and explore humanities content while contributing to vital records. The suite enables archivists to gather and analyze information for digital media archives in novel and exciting ways. Metadata Games is free and open source software (FOSS) developed by Tiltfactor, Dartmouth College‘s socially conscious game design laboratory, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the ACLS. Metadata Games is fueled in part by digital materials contained in the Boston Public Library and Clemson University, two contributing institutions to DPLA via the Service Hub in their state/region, Digital Commonwealth (Massachusetts) and the South Carolina Digital Library.
