Title: Extending the reach of our collective cultural heritage: The IMLS DCC Flickr Feasibility Study
Author(s): Jett, Jacob; Palmer, Carole L.; Fenlon, Katrina; Chao, Zoe
Subject(s): digital collections digital images Flickr Commons IMLS DCC Web 2.0 aggregator user-generated content tags
Abstract: The Flickr Feasibility Study investigated the roles and processes required for a digital collection aggregator to facilitate participation of cultural heritage institutions in Web 2.0 communities. The results demonstrate that providing this service for museums, libraries, and archives can be a natural extension of aggregation activities. While the role is complicated by the varying requirements of different kinds of institutions, analysis of user interactions can guide both collection development and building of communities of interest around cultural heritage collections.
