The Swedish National Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. This will become easier thanks to the improved APIs from StructuredDataOnCommons.
The project is documented on Meta: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Commons_Data_Roundtripping
- Research report on the desirability and requirements of GLAM-collections managers in regards to retrieving metadata added to their files post-upload on Wikimedia Commons
