For educators looking to use Library of Congress images that are not copyrighted, here are two important Creative Commons developments:
New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art releases 375,000 digital works for remix and re-use online via CC0.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has announced that all public domain images in its collection will be shared under CC0, expanding their digital collection by over 375,000 images as well as providing data on over 420,000 museum objects spanning more than 5,000 years. CC0 allows anyone to use, re-use, and remix a work without restriction.
Creative Commons Search Prototype
Creative Commons also has a new Image Search engine available in Beta - search the Met's images, along with other creative commons licensed images, to find an open image.
