Do you know which buildings are in this picture taken in 1965? 
Play AnteaterTag@UCI and help identify and describe photos
from the Online Archive of UCI History.

The UC Irvine Libraries invite the campus community, alumni, and general public to play AnteaterTag@UCI, a game in which contestants view and describe digital photographs from the Libraries’ Online Archive of UCI History.  Participants enrich the description of these historical images from the University Archives and contribute to UCI’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2015.

A competition is now open through February 28, 2014 for registered contestants to win prizes. 

Powered by Metadata Games, AnteaterTag@UCI is a pilot project launched by the UCI Libraries to gather valuable information, called "metadata", about archival pictures of people, places, and events at UCI from 1963-1982.  Metadata – the labels that tell researchers and search engines what’s in a photograph or item – will help make these important pictures more accessible to students and scholars. 

Participants play by tagging (the act of describing images using a keyword or short phrase) photos and earn points based on the number and quality of tags assigned.  Go to the AnteaterTag website at http://anteatertag.lib.uci.edu to play any of the four games including Zen Tag, NexTag, Pyramid Challenge!, and Mobile Tag.

The Online Archive of UCI History is a digital archive created by the UC Irvine Libraries to preserve and make available for research core historical records of the university in the University Archives, and to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of UC Irvine. Included are audio and video recordings, films, photographs and slides, and publications from 1959 forward.
