Yale announces free online access to museum, library collections

NEW HAVEN — Yale University officials announced yesterday that the school intends to be the first in the Ivy League to offer free online access to digital images of millions of objects housed in its museums, archives, and libraries.

No license will be required for transmission of the images, and no limitations will be imposed on their use, which will allow scholars, artists and others around the world to use Yale collections for study, publication, teaching, and inspiration, Yale officials said.

And they have only digitized 250,000 of their millions of objects. From Sioux war bonnets to Mozart manuscripts, more is on the way!
