Collection Inventories and Finding Aids

The Special Collections and Institutional Archives departments create finding aids for the Getty Research Institute's archival and visual resource collections and for a few historical records of the J. Paul Getty Trust. A "finding aid" describes the scope and contents of a group of records and provides an inventory of materials within the records.

 Title:  J. Paul Getty Museum Department of Manuscripts original enclosures study collection  
 Dates:  1983-2005 
 Abstract:  This collection comprises twenty-nine enclosures of varying size and design which originally housed objects from the J. Paul Getty Museum's Department of Manuscripts at the time of acquisition. Twenty-two enclosures contained objects from the Ludwig Catalogue, purchased in 1983, while seven housed manuscripts acquired after the Ludwig accession from 1984 to 2005. The enclosures held by Institutional Archives represent those housings that were originally received by the Department of Manuscripts upon acquisition and were replaced by new housings for conservation reasons. They feature original bindings, inscriptions, and bookplates, and have been retained for study purposes.
