Library Images Now on Flickr
Images from digital collections at the University of Delaware Library are now available on Flickr. Flickr is an application that allows for the sharing of images and building of communities over the Internet.
Currently, representative selections from the George Handy Bates Samoan Papers Photographs and the Willard Stewart WPA & HABS Photographs collections are available. A library user can view the Library's Flickr site at [http://www.flickr.com/photos/uofdlibrary/].
The project was implemented under the direction of Jaime Margalotti, Assistant Librarian, Special Collections Department.
Each image is enhanced with three linking features:
* Full size with description (links to the ContentDM image record
with full description of the image)
* View entire image collection (links to the University of Delaware
digital collection home page)
* Copyright (links to a notice on copyright restrictions for images
from Library collections)
These links appear on the Library's main Flickr page [http://www.flickr.com/people/uofdlibrary/] and in the description of each individual image.
Additionally, there is a Creative Commons designation for each image to make the rights of the user as clear as possible. More information about Creative Commons licenses is available at [http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses/meet-the-licenses]
