Smithsonian Opens Up Images

In an effort to promote access to its resources and increase public engagement, the Smithsonian Institution has released 2.8 million images from copyright restrictions on its site, Smithsonian Open Access.  Visitors to the website can download and use the files in whatever way they wish without requesting express permission from the organization.


Made available from the institution’s 19 museums, nine research centers, libraries, archives, and the National Zoo, samplers now have an enormous range of new images to work with.
