Join the MIT Libraries for a Public Domain-themed Wikipedia edit-a-thon! January 1st, 2020 is Public Domain Day – the day when works published in 1924 go out of copyright in the United States and enter the public domain, making them available for anyone to reuse and remix. To celebrate, the MIT Libraries annually digitize newly public domain works, and this year have digitized 10 works from 1924 focusing on women in academia. These will join the 100 works from 1923 that we digitized last year. Because they are now out of copyright, we can freely use images and text from these works on Wikipedia and other openly licensed projects….”
