Fair Use Web Sites
Since these early efforts, other digital coalitions have emerged,
aggregating and sharing digital images for educational and non-profit
use. Many of these digital imaging projects emerged because digital
technology provides the opportunity to reduce the redundancy that exists in
the analog world, and because the opportunity to dramatically expand access to
images across collections is an exciting prospect.
