AMICO University Testbed: Information Session

Twenty-three of North America's largest art museums have founded the Art
Museum Image Consortium (AMICO) to make multimedia documentation of their
collections available for educational use. AMICO is a not-for-profit
consortium open to institutions with collections of art. 

The AMICO digital library will initially be distributed in the academic
year 1998/1999 in a university testbed project.  A Call for Participation
will solicit interest from institutions willing to play an active role in
evaluating the use of multimedia museum information. Twenty universities
will be selected based on their proposed contribution to the testbed

An Information Session for potential testbed participants will be held in
conjunction with the upcoming Coalition for Networked Information Meeting. 
(A general project briefing will be given during the CNI Program.) The
Call for Participation will be distributed at this time, and the Goals and
Objectives of the Testbed will be presented and discussed.
