In a world of paywalls and monetised content, fourteen Parisian museums including the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Petit Palais, and the Catacombs have recently made high-res digital copies of 100,000 artworks by Rembrandt, Monet, Picasso, Cézanne, and thousands of others freely available to the public via its collections portal. To wit:
Users can download a file that contains a high definition (300 DPI) image, a document with details about the selected work, and a guide of best practices for using and citing the sources of the image. Making this data available guarantees that our digital files can be freely accessed and reused by anyone or everyone, without any technical, legal or financial restraints, whether for commercial use or not,
Allez les musées!

Via the Irish Examiner:
Three TV programmes from RTE and TG4 archives were used to generate classroom resources for teachers and students of Business Studies, Geography, History, Gaeilge, SPHE, CSPE and Digital Media Literacy.
The three publicly funded programmes used to create the resources were Ireland’s Deep Atlantic, Wrecking the Rising/Éirí Amach Amú and Cloud Control.
These resources are available at here where teachers and students can access the material and programme clips referenced in the material and watch the three full programme series.
