In Focus: Flickr and the Library of Congress

  • Speaker: Hanna Soltys, Reference Librarian, Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division
     
  • Learning outcomes: In January 2008, the Library of Congress Prints & Photographs Division joined the Flickr Commons. The Library’s Flickr Pilot provided a way to share collection items with a new audience and gather community feedback, strengthening online records and providing insights on tagging language. Today, the Flickr Commons has grown to include participating institutions around the world, totaling millions of “no known copyright restriction” images. This webinar will look at the Library’s Flickr work, including the COVID-19 American Experiences project, as well as general guidance on finding visual materials in the Library’s catalog.
     

This is an event hosted by the Library of Congress and the U.S. Government Publishing Office. Register to attend the live training webinar here.
