Images. | Gallica | Grad Training: Digital Skills I | Scoop.it

Sous toutes ses formes, par la richesse et la variété de ses supports, par sa double qualité d’œuvre d’art et de document, l’image occupe une place importante dans les collections de la BnF et dans Gallica. Historiquement représentée dans les collections depuis la fin du XVIIe siècle, d’abord sous la forme de l’estampe et du dessin, elle s’est développée, au fil des inventions et des innovations techniques, pour devenir omniprésente et engager l’ensemble des collections. Si le département des Estampes et de la photographie leur fait naturellement la part la plus belle, nombre d’images sont également conservées aux départements des Arts du spectacle, des Cartes et Plans, de la Musique, de la bibliothèque-musée de l’Opéra ou de l’Arsenal.

Open Collections

Here we list openly licensed datasets from several cultural institutions. All collections provide digital scans or photos that can be freely used without any restrictions. We first list the datasets that are completely in the Public Domain: below that we list the sets that are licensed under an open Creative Commons license (CC-BY/CC-BY-SA). The sets within each list have been ordered alphabetically.

This is an ever expanding list so if you know of datasets that are not listed here, get in touch. Please also let us know if you have published, remixed or re-used the data in any way.
Mel Leggatt's insight:

Open Collections is set to become an important portal for public domain collections in the future. Worth keeping an eye on.
