Reminder: Art Museum Images from Cartography Associates (AMICA) license ends June 30, 2008.
Access to the vast majority of AMICA images is available on ARTstor. Currently, less than 20% (about 20,000) of AMICA images are unavailable in ARTstor; however, in many cases, ARTstor offers additional images from participating museums. For example, AMICA has 29 images from The Phillips Collection, whereas ARTstor recently added 1,200 images from this collection. The five campuses currently subscribing to AMICA (Davis, Irvine, Merced, Riverside and Santa Barbara) will not renew their subscriptions. CDL paid the final year of the subscription July 1, 2007-June 30, 2008, on behalf of these campuses to provide faculty and staff time to make the adjustment from AMICA via Insight to ARTstor. Individual faculty may subscribe directly to AMICA from David Rumsey.
