Yale University's Digitizing of all its Museum-Worthy Artifacts, For Free and Open Access

All sorts of rare and unusual artifacts in Yale's collection are being photographed/digitized for the web, so everyone around the world can check out a handwritten Mozart sonata or William Blake watercolor, even if they don't actually attend Yale.

Going one step further than many other similar schemes, Yale isn't forcing a license or limits on the use of the digitized media, so they're free in the truest sense of the word. [Yale via Boing Boing]
