Following Open Culture on Twitter continues to have benefits: we hear about when an institution releases troves of material online. This time, Josh Jones wrote in November about how the Library of Congress has shared a ton of images that’s “either in the public domain, has no known copyright, or has been cleared by the copyright owner for public use.” Jones has all the details, including links to similar articles, like one about Getty Images making millions of photos free to use.
