    The Opportunity
    The Art Museum Image Consortium (AMICO), an independent, non-profit
    membership organization of museums dedicated to enabling educational use of
    museum multimedia, is seeking a synergetic relationship with a university.
    At a minimum, AMICO seeks to move its offices and staff, and become a
    tenant within a university in North America. Ideally, we seek a mutually
    beneficial environment in which to advance research on digital cultural
    heritage in the context of our production schedule and requirements.

    The Organization
    AMICO was formed in 1997 by 23 institutions with collections of art,
    dedicated to enabling educational access to museum multimedia. In the past
    four years, AMICO has grown to over 35 members and established itself as a
    self-sufficient, subscription-income-funded, organization. The AMICO
    Library is delivered by a variety of established information service
    providers. Currently over 160 universities, schools, research institutions,
    museums and art galleries on four continents subscribe to The AMICO Library.

    A Request for Proposals
    Universities with a strong tradition in Humanities Computing or Digital
    Library development and interested in exploring a hosting relationship with
    AMICO should consult the full Request for Proposals, available from
