Some of the Flickr mashups look fun, but the ones where pictures scroll by and you have to tag them remind me of playing "Memory" games when my kids were young. They could always beat me, because I just couldn't remember where the two pigs or two flowers were located no matter how many times I turned them up! I would imagine I would fare about the same trying to quickly tag images. For our library, I like mashups of maps and content the best. I was originally thinking text being the content, but I can see combining it with Flickr.

I think Flickr is great in that you can post pictures for all or some to share- and retrieve them by tags. I'm not as sure about the groups, unless you're really interested in one area, and want to retrieve all photos from those users and discuss with them. The Creative Commons licenses are great, so you know which photographs can be used in what way- I can see making use of this for work-related pictures that might be needed.
