How to Use Flickr For Cushing Materials

Navigation:

  1. Go to: https://www.flickr.com/photos/cushinglibrary/

Searching:

  1. To search these images, make sure you select the icon of a magnifying glass halfway down the page and to the right.

This will ensure that you are only searching within Cushing’s Flickr, rather than all of Flickr. This will bring up a blue block within the larger search box at the top of the page that reads “Cushing Memorial… | Photos.” Make sure this blue box shows up before you do any searching for images; otherwise, you will be searching all of Flickr.

You may also browse images by viewing albums on various subjects.

Viewing:

  1. Click on the item you want to view.

The image you selected will appear on the page with metadata below.

Saving:

  1. Save the image.

If you would like to have a copy of the digital file, you may select the download button (just under the image on the right).

Requesting:

  1. Request a higher quality scan of material.

 

If you find an image that you would like to request we provide a higher-resolution scan that that you would like to have a high resolution scan of, you will need the following information to submit your request for duplication:

  • The URL for the page
  • The name of the photograph (words following “Title:”)
  • The “Date Issued:”

  • All the information listed after “Identifier:”
