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