Library Web Quest week 4 flickr

Posted by andrewey on July 10, 2008

I can certainly see the use flickr as a way of promoting special collections. As a practical example storing photos from our recent Library awards event would be a good use of this tool.

The transfer of files to/from Flickr (and directly into a blog) is straightforward and it is useful to have the option to download photos in different sizes.

I’m still building up my collection of bookmarks on Del.icio.us and have now created a virtual reading list for every unit on the Applications of ICT in Libraries course that I deliver/co-ordinate. This will hopefully save myself and the students much time in the future in terms of finding and sharing good online resources.

As regards blogging, in addition to my weekly Web Quest blogs, I’m going to add regular posts on Library 2.0 issues and the use of Web 2.0 technologies relating to FE libraries.

  1. Another good use of Flickr is for finding images to use for brightening up web pages and documents. The best approach is to just search the Creative Commons material – go to
    http://search.creativecommons.org/ and click on the ‘Flickr’ tab to search for Creative Commons images.
