Tag

What’s a tag? A ‘tag,’ or piece of metadata, is a word or phrase that describes an image, audio, or video clip.

When you play and submit tags, you help libraries, museums, and universities across the country.

Without your help some of these images, videos, and audio clips could be lost forever in the jumbles of the internet.

Connect

Every image, video, and audio clip in the Metadata Games collection has a unique story for you to explore!

Use the powerful Metadata Games search tool to browse images, video, and audio that players have tagged!

Discover media about a wide range of topics! Like baseball? We’ve got that! How about animals? You can find them, too!

Stupid Robot looks at everything but understands nothing. Can you help? Teach him as much as you can about the image. As he learns, he’ll want to know longer and longer words!
