- Use #NationalRegister and #historicpreservation when talking about NR properties
We have had a a stellar team of interns help with our social media and description pages (from teaching us what "tagging" means to running contests posting photographs, answering questions, creating web projects, and everything else). This team included: Karolyn Moore, Kelsey Poblacio, Mary McDonald, Katherine Schroeder, and Alicia Guzman.
For the National Register Collection: Only the photographs that were taken by federal government employees within the normal course of their duties are in the public domain. Almost none of the photographs in our collection are in the public domain.
