Tag State Library's photos in Flickr Commons

The State Library of Queensland has more than 1.5 million photographs in its collection dating back to the late 1800s. Just over 60,000 are available online. Many photographs are missing information about who is in the photo, when it was taken, where it is and what’s happening in the image. You can help us to add value to these photographs by tagging them in Flickr Commons. We'll know more about the photos and it will be easier for people to find them online.

Before you start, you will need to create an account in Flickr or log in with Facebook, Google or Yahoo. Choose one of the assignments below to get tagging in Flickr Commons.
