Digital Curation (access exercise)

I’m currently doing a Digital Curation course with Jon Ippolito at the University of Maine. For this week’s assignment he has asked us to find and add a legally shareable image to our own blog, following a specific technique illustrated in a video tutorial. I searched for Malta music on Google and filtered the results through ‘advanced search’ to show only image that are “free to use of share”. As I expected, there weren’t many images returned in this search. The results returned went down to “about 58” from “40,900,000” returned on the unfiltered search.

Here’s the picture I selected:

The next part of the assignment has us picking a media file and embed a Creative Commons license next to it. Given that I’ve just finished producing this week’s edition of my weekly podcast, which is always released under a CC license, I’ve picked this audio file to embed here.
