Digitization Centre joins Flickr Commons

UBC Library’s Digitization Centre was recently welcomed as the latest member of the Flickr Commons, giving the general public better access to the world’s public photography archives.

A resource for students, researchers and historians, the Digitization Centre now reaches an even larger audience by contributing items to Flickr. These images will now be available for Creative Commons use – they are open access, freely shared images. The Digitization Centre joins esteemed members such as the British Library, Vancouver Public Library, the Library of Congress, and several provincial and national archives and libraries.
