MDAH Adds Digital Images to Flickr
More than eight hundred photographs and maps from MDAH’s archival collection can now be viewed on Flickr, the online photo sharing Web site. MDAH’s photostream contains images from seventeen Digital Archives collections, including the Cooper Postcard Collection, 1927 Mississippi River Flood Photograph Collection, Moncrief Photograph Collection, Historic Maps Collection, and many more.
Flickr is an online photo storage service with millions of users from around the world who post, organize, and share images. The department hopes to increase awareness of and access to its growing Digital Archives by reaching out to this global audience with an interest in photography and historical images.
Since the Library of Congress began posting its historical materials to Flickr in 2008, the platform has proven an excellent venue for showcasing scanned images with a wider audience that is interested in photography, history, and culture. MDAH has an immense store of archival photographic material, a growing portion of which is being digitized and made available online.
