Getty Search Gateway

Getty Search Gateway | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

The Getty Search Gateway allows users to search across several of the Getty repositories, including collections databases, library catalogs, collection inventories, and archival finding aids.

This tool is designed to help researchers, scholars, and educators discover the variety of resources available across the Getty's collections, which include collections in each the four programs: the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Conservation Institute, the Getty Foundation, and the Getty Research Institute. Users can use the tool to browse our collections broadly, by type of resource (i.e., paintings, books, archives), or to search directly for assets related to very specific subjects—historical periods, artists, object types, etc.

While users can search some of these collections individually using online search engines associated with the specific repository, Getty Search Gateway brings records from several of these databases together under one umbrella. Most of these repositories are not searchable through the Getty website's search tool, and some are only searchable here through Getty Search Gateway.

Intriguing comics and sweet illustrations from Talya Modlin | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

There’s something of a divide at It’s Nice That between those who appreciate comics and those who don’t, which is why artists like Talya are perfect for us as she dabbles in both comic book-making and brilliant illustration.
