Library of Congress - more than just books and paper

Via BoingBoing: The Library of Congress is using Flickr and inviting everybody to help tag some of its photo collections.

I love seeing big places take this stuff up. Honestly, I'm still skeptical of its efficacy, but if they can generate a buzz, they might have their moment in the sun and get some stuff tagged.

Oh hai! I'm still here, in ur museum blogz. But mostly I'm my museum blog where I've recently instigated a flickr account. Funny how not needing to be obsessed for months on end with a single topic will slow down the posting rate...

Hi Lynn! I've been reading your blog for a couple of months now from my post as curatorial assistant at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia. I wanted to know if there is any possibility of getting our brand new blog up on your (fantastically useful) list? gnaglak AT chemheritage.org. Thank you! Gigi
