About Flickr Commons
A place for the Commons Community to share and discuss the truly awesome collections being made available in the Flickr Commons
"The key goals of The Commons on Flickr are to firstly show you hidden treasures in the world's public photography archives, and secondly to show how your input and knowledge can help make these collections even richer.
"The Commons was launched on January 16 2008, when we released our pilot project in partnership with The Library of Congress. Both Flickr and the Library were overwhelmed by the positive response to the project! Thank you!
The Group Pool
Members of the Flickr Commons group are welcome to post images if they relate to images in the pools of Participating Institutions.
Do you have a mash-up or collage that you made from Commons' photos?
Do you have a photo that helps explain an image in the Commons?
Perhaps a "then and now"?
If you could add a html link to the Commons image or the discussion thread they pertain to, that would be excellent.
If you'd like to see some examples of how other people are linking their photos to the Commons, have a look in our many threads and check out some of the projects going on there.
Please do not use the pool simply to promote unrelated images from your stream; but please do show us how you interact with the Commons.
If you want to keep an overview of what's going on in The Commons, as well as some of the projects being created in this group have a look at the blog:
This is a public group.
