Photo sharing is the publishing or transfer of a user's digital photos online, thus enabling the user to share them with others (whether publicly or privately). This functionality is provided through both websites and applications that facilitate the upload and display of images. (Thanks to Wikipedia for this definition).

We will be using flickr.  Keep in mind that there are many other Photo Sharing Websites out there.

Examples of Libraries using flickr:
Hennepin County Library (Minnetonka MN) - Example of Patron Involvement
Darien Library (Darien CT)
Lackman Virtual Tour (Lenexa KS)
Gwinnett County Public Library (Lawrenceville GA) Great Profile Page! and don't miss Rock the Shelves.
Library of Congress

Library groups to join on flickr:  Libraries and Librarians, Librarian Trading Cards (creative example), 365 Library Days Project, Library Society of the World.
