New York Public Library shares digital archive of 180,000 restriction-free images


180,000 restriction-free images are now available in the New York Public Library digital collections. Including high res photographs, illustrations and maps, images can be downloaded easily and are free to share and use without permission. The collection can be viewed by genre or colour.

As part of providing unprecedented public access to the recently digitised archive, NYPL has put out an open call for its first Remix Residency with a view toward encouraging “transformative, interesting, beautiful new use” of its collection.
