The Internet Public Library offers a useful guide to image/photo sharing. The focus is on Flickr, but most issues apply to any photo website. If you are looking for an intro guide to using Flickr in a smart way at your library, check it out.
The problem lies with what you are allowed to do with the photographs once you have them. Your right to take photographs doesn’t include the right to publish them.
I’m disappointed to see they didn’t include anything on what the different Creative Commons licenses mean and how to attribute photos you use. At the risk of being self-promoting here is a post on attribution http://librarianbyday.net/2009/09/how-to-attribute-a-creative-commons-photo-from-flickr/
