"'A giant art database offering thousands of photos of paintings, sculptures and architecture throughout history began accepting clients Monday. ARTstor, which currently offers 300,000 of the most famous art images used in the enjoyment and teaching of art, is planned to hold more than 500,000 images when the database is accessible in July.'

Very Large Universities will have to pony up about 60 grand for access. The rest o' the story here at the Badger Herald.
