The Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery (RAMM) in Exeter has announced that it will be making its digital collections Open Access! This means that you'll be able to enjoy and reproduce historic artworks, such as this serene John White Abbott watercolour, in any way you wish (although I note that some older images still retain their copyright taglines).

According to the museum's press release:

“We believe that open access assists RAMM to fulfil its central purpose. Adopting an open access approach lets users access digitised collections and contribute to the rich cultural heritage of Exeter, regardless of where they are. We want people to be inspired, informed and entertained by RAMM’s collection and to use them to foster individual creativity. We recognise the importance of providing knowledge and information to the public to advance our mission and to unlock new cultural discoveries.”
