Librarians and Flickr
LibraryTechtonics: Interesting policy issues introduced by Flickr I have a fond place in my heart for librarians. My first love’s mother was one and I’ve always found them super interesting and frequently quirky. It’s interesting to see a librarian post here about getting a Flickr account for the library’s use. Obviously anyone interested in archiving photos would be interested in Flickr but libraries do seem like a particularly great place for Flickr. Imagine the beautiful collections of photos owned by various libraries, especially historical collections, being released on Flickr. How great would it be to have a few thousand images of San Francisco from say 1900 to 1945 available for view easily at Flickr.
Love seeing this and hope that more libraries consider adopting Flickr as a resource to share their photo collections.
