Library Of Congress + Flickr Redux

So, I know you love the fact that LOC started a Flickr site where they invite the public to tag away, but did you know that they have a blog?(With post titles like “Cartography Buffs, Take Note”!)
Anyhow, they’ve released a report about their Flickr pilot, which you can find here.
Sez the blog “The popularity and impact of the pilot have been remarkable,” said Michelle Springer, project manager for digital initiatives in the Office of Strategic Initiatives, who said total views reached 10 million in October. The site is averaging 500,000 views a month, she said, adding that Flickr members have marked 79 percent of the photos as “favorites.”
So, 1. go check out the Flickr site. 2. add the LOC blog to your reader.
