  • Flickr project commenced 2008 to extend access to collections. Boutique items for interest. Put in place by hand. Cut and paste
  • A few items from National Library of Scotland’s Haig Collection of photographs from World War 1
  • A few images from the collection of Edinburgh Soutthside tenements taken by in 1929 by  Alfred Henry Rushbrook on behalf of the  City of Edinburgh Improvement Trust .

  • Soviet posters Pont maps Sonnet 21 - Folio 22 from Phoebe Anna Traquairs illuminated copy of Elizabeth Barrett Brownings Sonnets from the Portuguese 1892-1897 http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlscotland/2399953139/in/set-72157604454790425/
  • 10% of all views. Also at http://www.worldhistoryjournal.com/2008/11/soldier-comrades-watching-him-as-he.html
  • We use the XML files for the page turner and also use them for Solr indexing. So we again are re-using. Solr is an indexing tool. It reads XML files and indexes them. It is very flexible in that it just needs &lt;field name=“xxxx”&gt;&lt;field/&gt; but also a schema to define the fields.
  • Allows users to be more precise in how they tag their own photos. It’s an API thing It can be used to search for your photos etc They have a special syntax
