Through a pilot program called The Commons, the Library of Congress has partnered with Flikr to post collections of images online in hopes of the public helping with the tagging process and possibly more identification information. Flikr, which routinely requires Creative Commons licensing, is also working with the Library of Congress for a new rights designation on these images.
Currently there are two collections of images online. These are: 1930s-40s in Color and News in the 1910s.
