The New York Public Library just uploaded nearly 200,000 images you can use for free
“The New York Public Library just released a treasure trove of digitized public domain images, featuring epic poetry from the 11th century to photographs of used car lots in Columbus, Ohio from the 1930s. Over 180,000 manuscripts, maps, photographs, sheet music, lithographs, postcards, and other images were released online Wednesday in incredibly high resolution, and are available to download using the library’s user-friendly visualization tool. It’s a nostalgist’s dream come true.
“No permission required, no hoops to jump through: just go forth and reuse!” writes Shana Kimball, manager of the library’s public programs and outreach.” – Andrew J Hawkins | The Verge
