Yale University Digitising Artefacts, For Free And Open Access

All sorts of rare and unusual artefacts in Yale’s collection are being photographed/digitised for the web, so everyone around the world can check out a handwritten Mozart sonata or William Blake watercolour, even if they don’t actually attend Yale.

Going one step further than many other similar schemes, Yale isn’t forcing a licence or limits on the use of the digitised media, so they’re free in the truest sense of the word. [Yale via Boing Boing]
