Article: Amassing a Treasury of Photography

The George Eastman House in Rochester and the International Center of Photography in Midtown Manhattan are working on a joint project. The New York Times reports:
The Web site - Photomuse.org, now active only as a test site, with a smattering of images - is expected to include almost 200,000 photographs when it is completed in the fall of 2006, and as both institutions work out agreements with estates and living photographers, the intention is to add tens of thousands more pictures.
The idea is to create a free, virtual -- and quite large -- online photography museum available to all.

As for format, the article only says:
... images of most pictures on the site would be modestly sized, about 300 pixels on the longest side, though higher-resolution images of photos in the public domain would be available.
