I taught a class on Thurs on the 2.0 Office. At the end I had some extra time so I showed some fun social tools that you can find professional uses for. One of these tools was Flickr. Well, it turns out (thanks David for pointing it out) that the Library of Congress has come up with a pretty awesome way to use Flickr.
The project is beginning somewhat modestly, but we hope to learn a lot from it. Out 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.
This is a great idea!! I love it!
