The National Gallery of Art has announced the launch today of NGA Images, a new online resource that revolutionizes the way the public may interact with its world-class collection. This repository of digital images documenting the National Gallery of Art collection allows users to search, browse, share, and download images believed to be in the public domain, underscoring the Gallery's mission and national role in making its collection images and information available to scholars, educators, and the general public.

With the launch of NGA Images, the National Gallery of Art implements an open access policy for digital images of works of art that the Gallery believes to be in the public domain (those not subject to copyright protection). Designed by Gallery experts to facilitate learning, enrichment and exploration, NGA Images features more than 20,000 open access, high quality digital images, available free of charge for download and use. The resource is easily accessible through the Gallery's website, and a reproduction guide and a help section provide advice for both novices and experts.

Users may search by keyword in the Quick Search box on the home page of NGA Images, or they may browse the regularly updated "featured" image collections prepared by Gallery staff on topics such as 19th-century French Art or frequently requested works.

The Gallery's open access policy is a natural extension of its mission to preserve, collect, exhibit and foster the understanding of works of art at the highest possible museum and scholarly standards. In applying the policy in a global digital environment, the Gallery also expands and enhances its educational and scholarly outreach. The Gallery believes that increased access to high-quality images of its works of art fuels knowledge, scholarship and innovation, inspiring uses that continually transform the way we see and understand the world of art.

Superb blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused ..
Any recommendations? Thank you!
