The platform encourages players to explore humanities content while contributing to vital records. Metadata Games enables archivists, librarians, data scientists, and others to gather and analyze information for digital media archives in new ways. The platform is free, open source software developed by Tiltfactor Laboratory, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).
