Hi Euan, 

Many thanks for highlighting these initiatives. These are hugely positive developments both in terms of sharing CC0 metadata and increasing access to open licensed cultural heritage resources, both of which have significant relevance to open education.  Congratulations to all those at the National Library involved in these initiatives.  

Best Wishes

As part of this work the Library has released collection metadata associated with the First World War Official Photographs under a CC0 license to The European Library (TEL) for inclusion in both its portal and in Europeana. The Library will continue to release further CC0 licensed metadata to TEL and Europeana over the coming months.

More than 1,000 digital images have been released into the Public Domain, including photographs of the construction of the Forth Bridge and The Tay Bridge Disaster enquiry; images from the historic book Scotia Depicta; nineteenth century posters and photographs from Edinburgh theatres; and images from Walter Blaikie’s collection of Jacobite broadsides.
