Getty Information Institute, Departments of Scholarly Coordination, Issues and Policy, Network Initiatives, and Special Project records
Series IV. Administrative records, 1982-1998 11.5 Linear Feet (17 boxes)
The records comprise history and program development files, chronological files, project and monthly reports, internal meeting development files and notes, budget drafts, collaboration files with other Getty programs, marketing and communications records, and general program and Trust administration files of the Scholarly Coordination, Issues and Policy, Special Projects, and Network Initiative departments of the Getty Information Institute, and its predecessor, the Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP), 1982-1998.
The records have been loosely divided into a number of sets. History, planning, and narrative materials include strategic planning, analyses, and reviews of the Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy departments as well as the Getty Art History Information Program in general. Chronological correspondence contains the correspondence of Marilyn Schmitt, Clare Sheridan (an early assistant of Marilyn Schmitt's), Susan Siegfried, and Deborah Wilde. Project and monthly reports contain project and staff status reports. Internal meeting and retreat records include the development files and notes of the advisory committee, program manager, and Trustee meetings and retreats. Budget materials contain drafts of budget reports. Getty program collaborations include materials on collaborations of the Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy departments with other programs and departments of the Getty. Technological infrastructure records comprise the Scholarly Coordination department's collaboration records with other Getty departments and outside vendors to develop technological infrastructure for the Getty. Marketing, communications, and publications records contain those departmental and program files relating to those issues. Finally, general administrative materials include program- and Getty-wide files not covered by any of the other subdivisions.
The records are intellectually arranged in the following order: history, planning, and narratives; chronological correspondence; project and monthly reports; internal meetings and retreats; budget; Getty program collaborations; technological infrastructure; marketing, communications, and publications; and Art History Information Program, Getty Information Institute, and Trust administration.
History, planning, and narratives, 1984-1996
The records contain development files, historical summaries, and goals for the AHIP/GII program, Scholarly Coordination Department and its successors, and individual projects. They also contain narratives about the program, department, and projects.
