“The Met” Art Goes Open Access!

Metropolitan Museum of Art logoToday, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art  made history my implementing an Open Access policy. The Met has made “images of artworks it believes to be in the public domain widely and freely available for unrestricted use, and at no cost, in accordance with the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) designation and the Terms and Conditions of their website. Also available is data from the entire online collection―both works it believes to be in the public domain and those under copyright or other restrictions.”  Met content will also soon be available within ArtStor, one of GRCC’s licensed databases, where it will provide students and faculty even more robust search results.

For additional image resources, see the [Image] tab on the Multimedia & Image Subject Guide.  For more on Creative Commons, view this archived webinar, The Beauty of Some Rights Reserved – An Introduction to Creative Commons Licensing, from the Michigan Community Colleges Association.
