Updates to CC Search

Creative Commons plans to continue improving and enhancing its new search functionality, CC Search, by adding content and features over the next year.

Ryan Merkley, Creative Commons’ CEO, says, “It’s a big project to index and search multiple media types for over 1 billion works. I expect this is a multi-year project. We’re also actively fundraising to support it. That will influence how quickly we are able to develop the final product.”

Future developments will include adding more content and content types by the end of the year. Creative Commons hasn’t said exactly what that content will be, only that it will be driven by community and partner input. Its initial focus will certainly be on CC licenses and works in the public domain, which according to Merkley, “is over 1.1 billion works. We haven’t gone beyond that in our planning yet to include other licenses.”

Just this week, Creative Commons announced that it is adding its CC BY-licensed photos to the Unsplash photo repository. Expect this content and more to be integrated into the search tool soon.
