Matt Raymond at the Library of Congress has been posting excited posts on his blog about the impact of placing 3,100 images from their collection on Flickr. Below is a summary of the activity within two days of their page going live.
• 392,000 views on the photostream
• 650,000 views of photos
• Adding in set and collection page views, there were about 1.1 million total views on our account
• All 3,100+ photos have been viewed
• 420 of the photos have comments
• 1,200 of the photos have been favorited
The British Library also has an amazing collection of images, so it would be great to see some of these appearing on Flickr as well.
