It’s official, we’re a part of The Commons on Flickr

It’s been some time since we first applied to be a part of The Commons on Flickr and we are happy to announce that we are now a participating institution.

From The Commons pagetext-the-commons the-commons-institutiuons

Cultural institutions on The Commons share photos from their collections that have ‘no known copyright restrictions’. You can see more about thisĀ copyright statement on Flickr.

We’ve been on Flickr since June 2008 and have uploaded over 2100 photos. Our Flickr friends are often busy commenting on/tagging our photos, sharing their considerable knowledge and, researching facts and figures. Our blog series Moments in Time is also shared on our Flickr stream.

By joining The Commons our collection becomes more visible. We are looking forward to meeting new Flickrites to our photostream who enjoy browsing old photos and may also have historical information and knowledge about our photos to share!

    I hope Flickr survives its current dreadful revamp enough to make it worthwhile for you.

    I have to confess I like the new Flickr layout! I can’t be the only one…that image panning is really very cool.
