The Libraries and Librarians Group on Flickr:
One Year, 700 Members, 3,500 Images (with both images and members coming from six continents), two tagging projects, one mash-up, 22 discusion threads, oh my!
As we hit a series of nice round numbers for the Libraries and Librarians Group on Flickr, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has participated and made the group the amazing resource and community that it is today.
Along these lines, if any of you are going to be at the Internet Librarian Conference this year there is going to be a presentation on Flickr. It will cover lots of ways libraries can use it as a tool for searching, outreach, marketing, connecting, community building and technical innovation. I’ll be presenting with some other (more impressive I might add:) folks too. Folks from other countries even! Now that is community, baby! I’ve been talking about Flickr and libraries quite a lot this past year, all over the country, but this one is near and dear to my heart.
If you haven’t checked out Flickr, or this specific Flickr Group please do. Here’ is a link to the Libraries and Librarians Group page.
