Major photo libraries join forces to provide free online service


The New York Times reports that a partnership between photo library giants George Eastman House and International Center of Photography has sparked development of an impressive digital image collection called Photomuse.org. The new web site–now in a testing phase–has great promise for educators, since it will offer free access to legendary photos that have value in classroom instruction. The project is expected to cost a minimum of $800,000. (Note: This site requires registration.)
