Open Clip Art Library

Open Clip Art Library logo

This project aims to create an archive of clip art that can be used for free for any use. There are over 12,000 clips from more than 700 artists available for download. The Open Clip Art Library uses open standard SVG files for vector format files and places all content into the public domain. The Open Clip Art Library is transitioning to the Creative Commons sponsored Open Source project, ccHost , to host content and implement ideas of the community over the last couple of years. Of specific importance at this conference is to meet with developers, coordinate with other projects, and get some time with the community for hacking.
