The Library of Congress Makes Thousands of Fabulous Photos, Posters & Images Free to Use & Reuse via Open Culture

February 16th, 2019
Another great collection of free-to-use imagery care of your very own Library of Congress. Your tax dollars (and history) at work! — Douglas
 
The history of the venerable Library of Congress demonstrates the vast importance that the founders of the U.S. accorded to reading and studying. It may be one of the country’s most durable institutions, “the oldest federal cultural institution in the nation,” it proclaims. While partisan rancor, war, and violence recur, the LoC has stolidly held an ever-increasingly diverse collection of artifacts sitting peacefully alongside each other on several hundred miles of shelves, a monument to the life of the mind that ought to get more attention.
