Another change for researchers occurred in May when BCIN,
a database managed by the Canadian Heritage Information
Network on behalf of the Conservation Information Network
(CIN) -- which brings together bibliographic holdings and abstracts
produced by several of the world's major conservation centers --
completed its redesigned Web interface and became a free
service with its own Web site
http://www.bcin.ca. Although the GCI
remains an active CIN partner and continues to include its
bibliographic holdings in BCIN, abstracts in the last two volumes
of AATA are not included in BCIN. Therefore, researchers will
need to visit AATA Online on the http://aata.getty.edu site in order
to access the complete bibliographic holdings of AATA.

"made in heaven", Exhibition in the Ikonenmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, Germany; 26 September 1999-16 January 2000 : 82 icons from the collection of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin-Museum für Spätantike und byzantinische Kunst. Among the displayed icons which remain in Frankfurt are some overpainted icons or fakes. Especially these are to be investigated by the museums restorer Mrs. Alexandra Bersch.
