Library of Congress Partners With Flickr

The Library of Congress announced on its blog that its partnering with Flickr to put photos from its collection online where users can interact with them. To start, the Library of Congress will post about 3,000 photos from two of its most popular collections on Flickr (there are about 14 million prints, photos and other visual materials at the Library in total). This project will include only photos for which no copyright exists. For more information about this project (and Flickr’s new tagging initiative called The Commons), read the announcements from Flickr and the Library of Congress.
