Case study: University of São Paulo Museum of Veterinary Anatomy[edit]

One of the images with improved metadata at the University of São Paulo Veterinary Museum

Another example is at the São Paulo Museum of Veterinary Anatomy. Like other small museums the world over, the Veterinary Museum did not have sufficient resources to create a thorough metadata catalogue for some of their collection, even though they had digitized many of their 3D objects. Partnering with local Wikimedians, who recruited and found funding for a student employee at the University, the local Wikimedians were able to expand the metadata on the objects, bringing new knowledge the images and finding mistakes in the paper records at the museums.
