Returning additions and corrections of Wikimedia Commons community metadata to their sources
An increasing amount of Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums (GLAMs) upload media to Wikimedia Commons. These media files help to enrich the experience of Wikipedia articles and increase the reach of heritage collections. The metadata of these media files are often augmented and enriched by the volunteers of Wikimedia projects. These enrichments often do not find their way back to the contributing GLAMs.

The Swedish National Heritage Board ( in collaboration with museums in Sweden are researching and prototyping a tool that makes it easier to extract this enriched metadata. This questionnaire indexes the use of third-party metadata in collection management systems in order to determine the scope of the tool that is going to be developed.

The questionnaire will take approximately 10 minutes to fill in. If you have additional information or suggestions feel free to mail the researcher (Maarten Zeinstra) at
