Library materials on public platform

Flickr - Photos from The Library of Congress

The Commons (The Library of Congress Pilot Project)

to increase exposure to the amazing content currently held in the public collections of civic institutions around the world, and secondly, to facilitate the collection of general knowledge about these collections, with the hope that this information can feed back into the catalogues, making them richer and easier to search.
