The MJP on Flickr and Youtube

Hi all,

I hope the new year has been a good one so far! I just wanted to drop a quick note and mention that the Modernist Journals Project has started a new endeavor to broaden our web web presence on Flickr and Youtube. So far, our Flickr page features covers for The Crisis and a special selection of covers and ads from our “on or about” 1910 collection — hopefully, with more theme and cover sets to come. In addition, we have planned a series of Youtube tutorials to help users navigate the database more efficiently. So far, we have our first basic tutorial up and running and will begin work on a new one soon. Any suggestions or feedback you might have on these projects is welcome.
