The AMICO University Testbed: 1998/1999

In the 1998/99 Academic Year AMICO conducted a major project: studies of users and uses on University campuses with 16 universities. In the study, users accessed a beta version of The AMICO Library in order to propose ways to improve the first public release of The AMICO Library scheduled for the 1999/2000 Academic Year.

A wide range of research projects, using different methodologies and focused on different sub-groups of university users, sought answers about who uses what kinds of art information for what purposes and explored the functions required to be more productive in these uses.

The following documents are available about the Testbed and its results:


In June of 2005, the members of the Art Museum Image Consortium voted to dissolve their collaboration. This site remains online for archival reasons.
