Metadata Policies

  • Only one date field is available in Wikimedia Commons.
    • For maps in atlases and illustrations in books, use the bibliographic date rather than the image date.
    • For prints and letters bound into extra illustrated volumes, use the date of the bound-in item rather than the date from the bibliographic record.
