Where Technology Meets Medical Librarianship

Flickr and the Wide World of Photos

This week the MLA course focused on online photo sharing. I have to admit it was fun and if you are interested there are some great pictures of my hometown now on this blog (look up and to the left) but, I don’t see how this is a professional tool. Perhaps I could see my faculty using this to share pathology slides but, isn’t that what institutional repositories are for? While I’m happy to try out Flickr I don’t see it as a professional tool; It’s just a fun toy and I’m left wondering why it ended up in the MLA course?
