Rijksmusem launches 125,000 image digital collection (Amsterdam)

Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, although partially closed until April 2013 due to renovations, has recently launched its digital collection. "Rijksstudio," the 125,000 work collection, provides access to some of the museum's most famous paintings (including Rembrandt's "The Night Watch," and Vermeer's "The Milkmaid"), and also allows users to explore lesser known objects (like an early 20th century airplane). Users can build their own collection by choosing works or cutting out details from works and adding them to personal Rijksstudio collections, or sharing them on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest
