The Mellon Foundation has given a grant to the University of Miami to support planning for and initial development of an International Cultural Heritage Law Bibliography (ICHLB). ICHLB would be the first, fully-abstracted, online bibliographic data base in cultural heritage law and policy, potentially encompassing the disciplines of art law, museum law, cultural property law and preservation law. ICHLB is a collaborative undertaking among the University of Miami School of Law, the J. Paul Getty Trust, and the Project for Cultural Heritage Law & Policy. The project, founded in 2003 and directed by Professor Stephen Urice of the University of Miami School of Law, completed its initial feasibility study of ICHLB in 2004-2006. A Conference on Bibliographic Resources and Needs for Heritage Law and Policy was held at the Biddle Law Library, University of Pennsylvania School of Law in 2004. Over the period of the planning grant, the collaborators will examine such issues as ICHLB's subject and document scope, creation of a classification/indexing system, and ICHLB's long-term sustainability. The findings will be presented for review at a meeting of an international advisory board. University of Miami School of Law Professors Stephen Urice and Sally Wise are co-principal investigators under the grant.
