Posting photos to Nashville Public Library Flickr

Do you ever take photos at the library programs happening at your branch? Share them on the library’s Flickr account!

If you’ve never seen the library’s Flickr account, please take a moment and give it a visit. I’ll wait. Seriously, go on, take a look.

Do, dee, dum……..all finished?

What’s the one thing that could make this better? Photos from all the library branches, of course! Would you like to add some photos taken at your branch? Wait!…one at a time…let’s do this in an orderly fashion…

Uploading to Library Flickr

In an effort to make this as easy as possible, the web team has created a private flickr account we’re calling the Staff Photo Pool. All staff will have the ability to add images to the Staff Photo Pool. When new images are added, the web team will select photos to add to the library’s public Flickr page. We’ll also load photos to Facebook. And we might even tweet one or two.

Uploading instructions are located on the Intranet. The username and password is included on the instructions. Also included are guidelines for taking photos at public events. These DO and DON’T tips will help you safeguard the privacy of anyone attending events at your location.

To recap:

NPL Flickr – this is where the library shares photos with the public.

Staff Photo Pool – this is where staff can contribute photos for inclusion in the public account. The web team will select photos from the pool to transfer to the public account.

Photo Pool Directions – mark your images PRIVATE!

Photo Guidelines – answers questions about who we can take pictures of and when we need release forms.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

1. Take a look at the library’s Flickr account.

2. If you have photos you would like to add, please follow the Photo Pool Directions and add them to the Staff Photo Pool. Be sure to mark your images PRIVATE.

If you have questions about what is allowed, consult the Photo Guidelines posted on the Intranet.

3. If you do not have photos to add:

a. Next time you give or attend a library program, think about snapping a photo or two.

b. Plan a time to take photos at an event at your location.

If you have any questions, please contact Pam Reese, Kyle Cook, or Jenny Ellis.
