Similar to what the British Library did about a year ago (link: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=671084);

Quote
"An American academic has ... uploaded 2.6 million pictures to Flickr, which are searchable thanks to tags that have been automatically added. The photos and drawings are sourced from more than 600 million library book pages scanned in by the Internet Archive organisation."

Accessible at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/internetarchivebookimages/

All made available with "No known copyright restrictions"; i.e. Public Domain work, copyright expired or waived etc.
