Major arts database converting to OA

The Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance is converting to OA on June 6.  For details in German see yesterday's announcement from the Informationsplattform Open Access.  Or see the same announcement in Google's English.

Although the database has an English title, it's sponsored by the Kunstgeschichtlichen Seminar der Humboldt-Universitšt in Berlin and the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften.

Update. Also see Richard Sietmann, Open Access: Freier Zugang zur Antike, Heise Online, June 7, 2007.
