Group Description365 Library Days Project: A tool for advocacy and inspiration
Here's the idea:
Let's get as many libraries as we can to sign up for a customized, library friendly version of the 365 project. That would mean that if you decide to participate, you would commit to downloading at least 365 pictures from in, around or about the library you work in, for and/or with. Uploading a picture every day for 365 days in this case wouldn't be practical, but committing to 365 images in a year could be done fairly easily. It could also have HUGE value for your library.
Imagine what a valuable historic document you could create for your library with this project! And while you're at it, at the end of your year commitment, you could contact your local newspaper and tell them about the project, where they could do a story and print selected pictures that you took over the year. Such a substantive advocacy project! It would demonstrate in very real ways, ways that get lost to many people in your community, that you and your library are doing important work every day of the year!
If you decide to take part, please add the photos you upload for the project into this group.
Also, please also tag the pictures you take for this project with the tag: 365libs
Finally, if you have any questions, I am willing to help. Drop me (Michael Porter, libraryman here on flickr) a line via flickr mail or email me and I'll help you get things running if you have any trouble.
Take pictures in/about/for your library! Share them! Join a community! Use the collection as a powerful advocacy tool!
