The Metropolitan Museum of Art has released 400,000 digital images of its collection into the public domain. Works that are covered by the new policy are identified on the Museum’s Web site with the acronym OASC. (Open Access for Scholarly Content).
The high-resolution digital images from the Museum’s world-renowned collection can be downloaded directly from the Museum’s Web site for non-commercial use including in scholarly publications in any media without permission from the Museum and without a fee. The number of available images will increase as new digital files are added on a regular basis.
