Independent scholars rejoice-The Getty Research Portal, which launched last month, makes 20,000 documents from the Getty’s collection and eight other libraries available to anyone with an internet connection. The texts, published before 1923 in the U.S. or before 1909 in other countries, are all in the public domain, and are downloadable free of charge. So next time you’re visiting the Getty’s photo archive of medieval tapestries, or going cross-eyed over one of their sterographic Maya reliefs, check it out!
