The Commons was launched on January 16 2008, in partnership with The Library of Congress. The program has two main objectives: To increase access to photography collections and to provide a way for the public to get involved by providing information and knowledge. Many institutions have gotten involved with the project and it is really growing. A few of the participating instutions include Brooklyn Museum, Powerhouse Museum, Smithsonian, and the National Media Museum to name a few.
