Library of Congress Photo Pilot Project with Flickr

The Library of Congress has undertaken a Pilot Project with Flickr to have people “tag, comment, and make notes on the images…” to ensure better access to Library of Congress collections and to have the best possible information about the collections for researchers and posterity. According to the Library of Congress blog, “…of some 14 million prints, photographs and other visual materials at the Library of Congress, more than 3,000 photos from two of our most popular collections are being made available on our new Flickr page, to include only images for which no copyright restrictions are known to exist.

Flickr has created a new publication model for publicly held photo collections called “The Commons.” Flickr’s take on the project is here.

More information is available on the Library of Congress Web site and on the FAQ page.
