Flickr for a Library Tour: Part II

UWinnipeg Library

The Flickr Library Tour is now available from the University  of Winnipeg Library's web site. I added descriptions to the pictures. So far comments from Library staff have been very positive. Our website administrator added a line to our template so it is easy to add the Flickr badge to any page on the site.

I want the tour to be a living thing – in other words I'd like library staff to keep adding pictures to it. Right now if you do the slide show you kind of see the tour in a tradition sequence, mimicking a f2f tour. In time as more pictures are added this will break down. And right now with the Flickr badge it is the point of entry is random.

I had sent out messages to staff about using Flickr, but I was getting much response, so I'm holding a training session on Wednesday.
