Getty Embraces Open Content

Approximately 4,600 images from the J. Paul Getty Museum are now available in high resolution on the Getty’s website free of charge to be used for any purpose.  Future plans are to make available all content to which the Getty holds all rights or that are in the public domain.  James Cuno, Getty President and CEO, writes:  “In its discussion of open content, the most recent Horizon Report, Museum Edition stated that ‘it is now the mark—and social responsibility—of world-class institutions to develop and share free cultural and educational resources.’ I agree wholeheartedly.”  Read Cuno’s complete post on Iris, The Online Magazine of the Getty.  Access all free images or search via the online collection and look for individual download links.
