|free text=}} Media and Film archives serve many different types of media researchers. To be able to find and contextualize media objects, annotations are needed. One way of getting annotations is through user contributions. techniques include crowdsourcing, nichesourcing. Annotation platforms (accurator) or games-with a purpose (waisda) collect different types of annotations. Furthermore, different types of annotators provide different types of annotations (object-level, emotion-level,...) For effective use (specifically in research) by different types of end users, provenance information is key. The project consists of a) analysing different types of end-user tasks and the varying needs for provenance in a film archive b) developing a framework and datamodel to integrate provenance information with user tasks and annotation preferences. c) develop a experimental setup to test the framework and datamodel through a small-scale user experiment
