I think this is so great. I hope it grows!
Library of Congress has posted over 3,000 photos on flickr. They’ve been given a special area of their own – The Commons. Go check out what they’ve done!
You can read more about the project on their flickr page and also in American Libraries.
It appears the project is meant to combine copyright free images from institutions around the world. Sort of a one-stop image shopping spot. 🙂
I know for certain costume designers at least will be extremely happy about this.
