Continuing to extend the wealth of photos already available in The Commons on Flickr, we are excited to welcome the Nasjonalbiblioteket, also known as the National Library of Norway.

The National Library of Norway is responsible for preserving and making available, to present and future users, the information that shapes our society, regardless of how and in which medium it is published. Our collection is a vast treasure chest of information and experiences about Norway, Norwegians and Norwegian culture and history. And as the Norwegians have been and still are a traveling people, the collection is supplemented from the world at large. You can find unique collections of manuscripts, special collections of books, music, radio and TV programs, film, theater, maps, posters, pictures, photographs, newspapers etc.

The Library’s image corpus on Flickr includes photographs of beautiful Norwegian landscapes, portraits of important personalities and people, old post cards, as well as records of expeditions around the globe.

Help make the photographs you enjoy more discoverable by adding tags and leaving comments. Your contributions and knowledge make these photos even richer. You can check out the whole selection in their sets, and we hope you enjoy this collection as much as we do.
