Flickr and the Library of Congress

Milestone for Library’s Flickr Pilot

Only nine months into the Library of Congress’ pilot project placing
Library photos on the Web site Flickr, the photos have drawn more than
10 million views, 7,166 comments and more than 67,000 tags, according
to a new report from the project team overseeing the lively project.

“The popularity and impact of the pilot have been remarkable,” said
Michelle Springer, project manager for digital initiatives in the
Office of Strategic Initiatives, who said total views reached 10
million in October. The site is averaging 500,000 views a month, she
said, adding that Flickr members have marked 79 percent of the photos
as “favorites.”
