The Smithsonian recently launched Smithsonian Open Access, featuring “more than 4.5 million 2D and 3D digital items” from their collection. The open access content includes “images and data from across the Smithsonian’s 21 museums, nine research centers, libraries, archives, and the National Zoo.”
All content is available for download and reuse, and will surely prove to be a treasure trove of OA content that can be used in a range of digital humanities instruction and research settings.
