- FAIVA: Fine Arts Interactive Visual Archive
The project saw its inception in the early 1990s, under the direction of Dr. P. Richard Stanley-Baker, when a demonstration version was presented in EXPO 2001 in 1993. Over the years, the FAIVA database had been modified and developed with new technology and by 2003 the web version was implemented. Currently the database contains more than 85,000 records of which 50,000 are accessible to general intranet users.
