How can we share images more effectively for use in teaching and learning? The CLiC report (“Community-Led Image Collections) looked at this question a couple of years ago and, more recently JISC and the Higher Education Academy co-funded some case studies building on that report. The results are perhaps unsurprising, but worth bearing in mind for future work. In short, we need to work both with the gravitational centres on the web (eg Flickr) and institutional facilities, and ask how these best support individuals and academic communities, we need to find ways of alleviating copyright worries without ignoring the issue; we need to come up with solutions that will work for small-scale community collections with little technical support; and we need to do all this bearing in mind that open sharing of images may not always have a business case. Put like this, the findings are perhaps a little anodyne, but the fuller summary and full reports show how these questions are worked through in visual arts, engineering, archaeology and geosciences.
