Artnet News recently posted an article about museums increasingly making their catalogs available digitally. In 2009, the Getty Foundation and partners launched the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI), a free online catalogue of the institutions’ art collections. Most recently added were the Smithsonian’s Freer and Sackler Galleries. Other institutions include J. Paul Getty Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art Washington D.C., the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Seattle Art Museum, Tate, and the Walker Art Center. The database is designed for both public and research purposes.
