Historical photos on Flickr: it's streamy!

Oh alright already, we'll join the bandwagon! A handful of digitized photos from the Historical Collections & Archives has now been loaded to Flickr, as part of the OHSU Library's photostream. (If you're only interested in seeing the historical materials, you can go directly to the HC&A subset.)

These ten images were selected from the subset of digitized images mounted in the OHSU Digital Resources Library, which is itself a subset of our growing collection of digitized photos, which is (you guessed it) a very small subset of all our image collections.

What do you think? Do you use Flickr regularly, and if so, do you look for historical images there? Do you like the ability to comment? Would you like to see us do more of the Flickr thing, or do you think we have it covered with the other publishing outlets we already use? (Web site, blog, Digital Resources Library). If you have an opinion, feel free to comment here or email us directly.
