"Taiwan’s National Palace Museum, which boasts one of the world’s largest collections of Chinese artifacts and artworks, is expanding—virtually. The museum has digitized 70,000 images of its vast holdings.
The images are available to download for free, along with information about the objects’ histories, as part of the museum’s Open Data photo-sharing initiative. While a number of institutions now offer digitized archives, the Palace Museum is the first to put a Chinese art collection of this size online, according to the BBC."
