The ArchivesOnFlickr group is now public! I described it as:
“A new group for archives, special collections, and libraries posting images of objects from their collections on Flickr. Our goal is to provide an easy way for users to find images of unique primary sources through our photo pool, establish best practices for tagging our resources, and provide a forum for discussion on issues relating to archives and Flickr.”
And it looks like the Wisconsin Historical Society has already thrown 74 images into our photo pool. Please join up if you’ve got images on Flickr already or are considering it. There’s a discussion forum on the homepage, and I hope people use this to share their experiences (good and bad) with posting their images.
