Smithsonian Releases 2.8 Million Images Into Public Domain

Preview

The Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex. The launch of a new open access platform ushers in a new era of accessibility for the Institution. Katherine J. Wu writes in Smithsonian Magazine: Culture connoisseurs, rejoice: The Smithsonian Institution is inviting the world to engage with its vast repository of resources like never before. For the first time in its 174-year history, the Smithsonian has released 2.8 million high-resolution two- and three-dimensional images from across its collections onto an open access online platform for patrons to peruse and download free of charge. Featuring data and material from all 19 Smithsonian museums, nine research centers, libraries, archives and the National Zoo, the new digital depot encourages the public to not just view its contents, but use, reuse and transform them into just about anything they choose—be it a postcard, a beer koozie or a pair of bootie shorts. https://www.si.edu/ https://www.si.edu/openaccess...
