It was founded in 2001. It is a collaborative effort of Princeton University's Firestone Library and the Princeton Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies. The Pew Charitable Trusts ( underwrote the original development of the archive. The National Endowment for the Arts ( will be taking over the content sometime in 2014 and the data will be part of a new publicly accessible archive at ICPSR, the National Archive of Data on Arts and Culture (NADAC).
