Creative Commons

I just stumbled across Creative Commons today. CC is a site that links to images, songs, etc. that have some or no rights reserved. You can search Google, Yahoo!, flickr, blip.tv, OWL, and SpinXpress for subjects in a variety of media. Those who have never heard of it might want to take a look. It's a pretty interesting collection.

  1. When I saw this posting and then went to Jessamyn West's presentation at MLA where she mentioned creative commons and Flickr, it made me think it might be useful to develop a guide for students to finding images that they can use in class presentations. This could be one resource for images that can be used as long as credit is given to the orginal source. "I need an image for my Powerpoint presentation" is a frequent question at the reference desk...
