I was trying to do the initiative thing, so I set up a Flickr account for our library. The reception it got from the staff was somewhat lukewarm, who did see it as a good alternative for storage away from the intranet drives that get emptied every so often, and I was trying to push the promotional tool aspect also.
But there was a big question about privacy for customers and such who might appear in our photos, especially from the Childrens' Librarian, who was worried about the pedophile aspect and the fact she only gets verbal agreement to photograph students and kids. Law is that people don't really get a say about being photographed in a public place, but still.
Has anyone else experienced something similar? Do you have a Flickr for your library?
