Getty Art History Org Gets Digital

The J. Paul Getty Art History Information Program and MUSE Educational Media have launched a pilot project to explore intellectual property rights and other issues related to digital images and information.

Participating will be seven museums and seven universities that will work to resolve problems of rights, computer network security and information standards. This collaborative venture will attempt to demonstrate the value of digital media in the study of art and culture.

The Museum Educational Site Licensing Project is scheduled to run through June 1997. It will make digitized images and descriptive texts representing at least 3,000 works of art available to the online networks of participating universities.
