Technology Analysis Project: Flickr

Technology: Flickr
Context: Promotional and outreach tool for special collections, art libraries, and rare books repositories
Audience: Researchers and general public, discovering among visual material and primary sources

Many of the respectful institutions maintain their Flickr account and upload part of their, mostly visual collections, on this social media platform. I would like to investigate what advantages may be in using this open service as opposed to other free and open content management systems for digital collections.
