At the end of April, as
called for in our schedules, AMICO shipped to the Research Libraries
Group documentation of over 50,000 works of art and associated images.
Some works remain to be shipped. The 1999-2000 Library, projected to
be "more than 40,000" works is most likely to be 54,000-55,000.
AMICO reached agreement
with California Digital Library to allow them to develop an application,
but not yet for full delivery, of The AMICO Library.
AMICO acquired large tape
drives an backup tapes giving it the capability to store almost 500
gigabytes of data in April. With that we were able to compile and ship
The AMICO Library for 1999-2000 which, as collected and processed by
the end of April consisted of:

In April, AMICO began discussions

to serve as AMICO's data archive and a delivery service for large images,
and to explore ways to fund members' digitization of their museum publications.
