Megan Prelinger, founder/owner of this idiosyncratic library, says:

The library is appropriation-friendly. It has been built to serve the raw material needs of creators of all kinds, including visual artists as well as researchers and writers. This means that the holdings are weighted toward image-richness, and toward materials that are within the public domain.

Read about how the library is catalogued to a map of Ms. Prelinger's brain.
More? A good article from Harper's.
