Digital Depot with Open-Access Media

For the first time in its 174-year history, the Smithsonian Institution has released more than 2.8 million high-resolution two- and three-dimensional images from across its collections onto an open-access online platform for visitors to peruse and download free of charge. Featuring data and materials from all 19 Smithsonian museums, nine research centers, libraries, archives, and the National Zoo, the new digital depot encourages the public to not just view its contents but also use, reuse, and transform them into just about anything they choose. The Smithsonian is committed to releasing more than 3 million items throughout 2020 alone. Beyond 2020, it will add more items on a continuing basis as they are digitized, researched, and published online.
