What are tags?

The National Archives holds millions of records. To help our users easily find these records we add metadata (extra information such as keywords, to describe a record) to them. Below is an example of where The National Archives has added metadata to records.

Date and location metadata will commonly have been added by The National Archives

Unfortunately The National Archives is unable to add more descriptive metadata to the records. This is where you can help. You can add metadata to records, and in a similar way it will make finding records easier for other users. We call this tagging records!

Additional metadata in the form of user tags can be added by users.
