Title: Enhancing Cultural Heritage Collections by Supporting and Analyzing Participation in Flickr

Subject(s): Cultural heritage institutions Digital Collections Flickr IMLS DCC Web 2.0 digital aggregation tags
Abstract: Cultural heritage institutions can enhance their collections by sharing content through popular web services. Drawing on current analyses from the Flickr Feasibility Study, we report on the pronounced increase in use of the IMLS DCC Flickr Photostream in the past year, trends in how users are engaging with the content, and data provider perspectives on participation in Flickr through the DCC. In addition to users providing comments and tags for images, they are increasingly integrating historical images from libraries and museums into new digital objects and special collections. Intermediary services can fill a key role in lowering the burden for institutions to engage in Web 2.0 initiatives and broadening public access to cultural heritage content. To extend the scope of the current DCC services, we propose a feedback framework for transferring user-generated information to institutional data providers.
