Many libraries and archives have been embarking on projects for digitizing archives and special collections. In addition to hosting digital collections on their own sites more and more libraries are also using other tools such as Flickr. The Library of Congress is one of the more notable libraries using Flickr.
I recently became aware of the Musée McCord here in Montréal having a Flickr account as well. This picture is of Interior Peter Redpath Library, McGill University, Montreal, QC, ca. 1893 is from their collection. It is great that these libraries are putting these resources where ordinary people are able to find them and see them. I mean, sure I’ve been to the McCord Museum (years ago), but I would never have thought to look into their archives.
