An online picture library: the database Cinémage

Cinémage, opened to the public in 2006, is an on line picture library produced by the Bibliothèque du film (the Film Library). For works which are not in the public domain, an agreement has been reached with rights holders. These have to be contacted by the purchasers for all exploitation of pictures, as the sale by the Film Library does not cover their reproduction. In order to satisfy the expectations of all the players, Cinémage has at its disposal a documentary management functionality, notably a database (pictures, records, legal information), and offers an interface for consultation with a multi-criteria search engine and basket management.
