Challenge your friends and see if you're smarter than they are in this 2-player image tagging game. Be careful not to be One Upped! One Up is a Metadata Game: a game that gathers new information about archival materials from libraries and archives around the world! You are adding vital information to publically accessible records-- information that is often missing from descriptions or keywords describing media artifacts.
