From an Unsplash Post on Medium:

Back in July, we launched Unsplash for Education — connecting students and teachers everywhere to powerful, inspiring visuals.


From historical images of soldiers during World War I to baroque paintings, we’re excited that these renowned institutions have shared rich content on Unsplash, making it easier for students and the general public to find new meaning in their archives, creating presentations, artwork, reports, and more. By sharing a selection of their archives on the platform, they are instantly connected to an audience of over 300 million people a month ready to engage with their content.
