Getty Releases 4,600 Images as Open Content | OpenGLAM

The Getty's Open Content Program

With the launch of its new Open Content Program – “an initiative to make available, without restrictions, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible” – the Getty has released some 4,600 high-resolution images from the Museum’s collection.


From official press release:

We plan to release many more images of works of art in the public domain over time, both from the Museum’s collection and from the special collections of the Getty Research Institute. We’re conducting a thorough review of copyright and privacy restrictions on our holdings to identify all the images we can make available.

In a future step, we’ll look at additional content we can add to the Open Content Program—both other kinds of images, such as documentation from the Getty Conservation Institute’s field projects around the world, and knowledge resources, such as digital publications and the Getty Vocabularies.

The Modernism Lab at Yale University: A virtual space for collaboration & research

Modernism Lab   Yale University

The Modernism Lab at Yale University is an open access (content to is freely available to anyone), virtual space dedicated to research into the roots of literary modernism.  Since its inception in 2005, The Modernism Lab  has supported over eighty graduate and undergraduate students at Yale and ten other universities.   The project as a whole aims “to reconstitute the social and intellectual webs that linked these writers—correspondence, personal acquaintance, reading habits—and their influence on the major works of the period.”  Research focuses on the literary, intellectual, and historical impact of Modernists during the period of 1914-1926.  Particular emphasis is given to their involvement in the political movements of the day such as socialism, feminism, liberalism, nationalism, and imperialism.  The website features:

  • YNote – a research tool containing information on the activities of 24 leading modernist writers
  • Wiki – contains brief interpretive essays on literary works and movements of the period.
  • Digital Archive – chronological list of links to Modernist etexts (will eventually include electronic texts and digitized versions of holdings in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library)
  • Featured Research
