Technical & administrative limitations[edit]

For example

  • Contractual or technical limitations in collections management systems
  • Lack of skills, labour or resources
  • Institutional arrangements

Lack of trust[edit]

  • Inability to evaluate the expertise of the user contributions.
  • Reluctance to integrate the user contributions the institution's master database
  • Missing data provenance

Quality issues[edit]

  • Translations based on machine translation may not be properly checked
  • Lack of constraints in user input provide unacceptable variance
  • Institutional practices (for example naming conventions) may differ from user contributions
