Image Archives at Your Fingertips

The world’s public photography archives are at your fingertips with Flickr’s new online project: The Commons. So far, participating organizations include the The Library of Congress, Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian Institution and the New York Public Library, to name only a few. Visitors are invited to enjoy unprecedented access to publicly-held collections and to add their own contributions by adding tags or leaving comments. Click on one of my favorites from the Brooklyn Museum above to see what others are saying about it. Pretty cool, eh?
