Check out this awesome use of flickr by Cambridge Libraries in Ontario. Each book in the photo has been annotated with a link to the item in their catalog! Imagine, any library could do this to showcase their new arrivals, special program displays, etc. Highlighting this on the library's website would be a great way to advertise and build community. The library could encourage patrons to comment on the photo and become contacts in flickr. Genius, genius, genius! I am continuously amazed by the creativity of librarians!
