Library of Congress Free Browser Extension Is in Beta

Flynn Shannon, a junior fellow in the Library of Congress’ (LC) Office of Communications, writes in a guest post about creating a Chrome extension for free-to-use images from the LC. It is currently in beta. “I was tasked with designing and developing a proof-of-concept Chrome browser extension to increase awareness and interaction with digital images with no known copyright restrictions. These images are of particular interest because they can be used freely for any purpose.

“Once installed, the extension will change the background of each new tab to a random picture from the Library’s collections that is free to use and reuse. The extension will encourage the use of these images by giving users the option to easily download, email, and share the photos on Facebook and Twitter. Users will also be encouraged to learn more about the items by interacting with them on the Library’s website.”

For more information, read the blog post.
