Flickr is one of the premier online sites for sharing photos; it boasts a large (some say 1.5 million users) and vibrant online community. There are Flickr Groups for any interest, many of them are geographically related – there’s even a special one for Manchester! The 365 Library Days Group is just over 400 worldwide libraries, each having made the commitment to upload one photo for every day of the year. We began participating on our in-library New Year’s Day celebration and have kept it up ever since. Today we uploaded our 200th photo!
The project, within the library, is a collaboration between me and Yvonne, one of our skilled reference librarians (she blog too!). Yvonne has done a phenomenal job taking lovely photos – really capturing the beauty and spirit of the library. You’ll notice a photo banner at the top of our library webpage created with the latest five of out 365 Libs contributions. Now that we’re over halfway to our goal of one for every day of the year…. What shall we do next year to top it?
