on image repositories as a whole

Standard

What a useful concept.  That here is this place devoted to archiving a very specific thing that may or may not seem important enough to have a place in the overarching history of the world.  Because there will always, always be someone looking for it somewhere.

It’s really poetic, when you think about it that way.  The whole of librarianship is.  That here is this profession centered around not creating or destroying but upholding information and making sure it can be found in the future.  Our goal is to prevent things from fading into obscurity, even little things.
