About this group »


Welcome to ArchivesOnFlickr, a new group for archives, special collections, and libraries posting images of objects from their collections on Flickr. Our goal is to provide an easy way for users to find images of unique primary sources through our photo pool, establish best practices for tagging our resources, and provide a forum for discussion on issues relating to archives and Flickr.
