Public Domain Resources: Home

This guide is intended to share a variety of public domain resources including: images, music and video with students, faculty and staff.

Tips for Locating Public Domain Resources

Use quotation marks to search by a person's name or phrase. This narrows your search to an exact match.

For example:

"public domain"

"public domain music"

"public domain video"

Use the site:. command to limit your Google search by domain type.

For example using:

site:.edu        will limit your Google search results to an .edu domain.

site:.org         will limit your Google search results to an .org domain.

site:.gov         will limit your Google search results to a .gov domain.

Combine the site:. command with your keyword search terms in quotes to help you limit your Google search results.
