Another great idea

Emily touts the Picture Australia example from Lorcan's presentation below. The idea of putting the images on flickr was cited by Lorcan as an example of 'syndicating the user discovery experience." He also cited a great example of "syndicating links" whereby libraries are putting entries and links to their special collections in wikipedia. (He gave an example of someone's salmon collection but I didn't catch the specific collection - does anyone remember?). I would be curious to hear if folks know of other libraries that are adding local/unique resources to wikipedia.

Comments

The salmon example referred to U-Washington, which entered their salmon collection. I thought this was a great idea as well!

I was just seeking this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.

I've been absent for some time, but now I remember why I used to love this blog. Thank you, I will try and check back more frequently. How frequently you update your web site?
