Open Content Program (The Getty)

Open Content Program (The Getty) | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
The Open Content Program provides free, unrestricted access to the Getty's digital resources.


Why Open Content?

The Getty adopted the Open Content Program because we recognized the need to share images of works of art for free and without restriction, so that all those who create or appreciate art—scholars, artists, art lovers, and entrepreneurs—will have greater access to high-quality digital images for their studies and projects. Art inspires us, and imagination and creativity lead to artistic expressions that expand knowledge and understanding. The Getty sincerely hopes that people will use the open content images for a wide range of activities and that they will share the fruits of their labors with others.

What's in Open Content?

Currently, there are more than 87,000 images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute available through the Open Content Program, including more than 72,000 from the Research Institute's Foto Arte Minore archive, which features photographs of the art and architecture of Italy over 30 years by German photographer and scholar Max Hutzel (1913–1988). Other images include paintings, drawings, manuscripts, photographs, antiquities, sculpture, decorative arts, artists' sketchbooks, watercolors, rare prints from the 16th through the 18th century, and 19th-century architectural drawings of cultural landmarks. Over time, images from the Getty Conservation Institute will be added, as well as more images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute.

UPDATE: there have been many requests to buy the print – thank you! We’ll be looking into it this week – so hopefully by the end of the week (that being Friday March 25), we should have something available. Thanks again for all your support and positive attitude, it’s so wonderful to see so many of you enthusiastic about giving credit where credit is due. x

Yes I think giving credit to other people's material we use is the right thing to do. Thanks for posting this.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, July 23, 2013 5:13 PM

Lots of steps to go through before using that copyrighted material. Maybe if the students had to look at this each time, they would just take your word for it and use Creative Commons licensed images to begin with!

In an effort to stem teacher apprehension about letting students at the elementary level just “google” their image, Fred Koch created this screencast on the features of Google Advanced Image Search. In particular, this tutorial points to the importance of citing images, finding images which are ‘labeled for reuse’ and examining the SafeSearch options.

10x10 / 100 Words and Pictures that Define the Time / by Jonathan J. Harris

10x10 / 100 Words and Pictures that Define the Time / by Jonathan J. Harris | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Here's another automated flash based filter tool that trolls the Internet for image and associate stories drawn with a linguistic sifting of keywords from the latest newsfeeds.  ~ Dennis


10x10 ('ten by ten') is an interactive exploration of the words and pictures that define the time.


Process.


Every hour, 10x10 scans the RSS feeds of several leading international news sources, and performs an elaborate process of weighted linguistic analysis on the text contained in their top news stories. After this process, conclusions are automatically drawn about the hour's most important words. The top 100 words are chosen, along with 100 corresponding images, culled from the source news stories.


At the end of each day, month, and year, 10x10 looks back through its archives to conclude the top 100 words for the given time period. In this way, a constantly evolving record of our world is formed, based on prominent world events, without any human input.

14 Handy Tips on How to Better Use Google Images ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Med Kharbach


This is the fifth guide I created in a series of several posts on how to tap into the educational potential of Google services. Today's topic is Google Images. This is probably among those most used services in education. Teachers and students use images for a variety of learning and teaching reasons. However, before  including images in any classroom project, students need to learn about copyright issues.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Excellent tips on how to search Google Images, including how to filter for Creative Commons licensed images.
