"This week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrates six months of its Open Access Initiative.
The Met’s open access project made more than 375,000 of the Met’s images of public domain works available under Creative Commons Zero.
To celebrate its six-month anniversary of open access, the Met shared a recap of the project’s success. So far, over 90% of the Met’s images have been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, and Wikipedia articles featuring Met images have increased by 500%."
