Getty Information Institute, Departments of Scholarly Coordination, Issues and Policy, Network Initiatives, and Special Project records
Series II. Outreach files, 1983-1997 5 Linear Feet (7 boxes)
The records document the conferences supported by the Getty Information Institute (GII) and its predecessor, the Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP), as well as the conferences actively participated in (i.e. beyond mere attendance) by Marilyn Schmitt and her staff in the Scholarly Coordination, Issues and Policy, and Special Projects departments, 1983-1997. The materials also document the Invited Speakers Series as well as the general outreach efforts of the Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy departments. The records consist of conference and working group notes and development files, correspondence, memos, reports and speeches, individual art historian records, and general outreach documentation. Although Marilyn Schmitt's outreach files comprise the bulk of the records, Susan Siegfried's conference files, 1989-1996, and Deborah Wilde's art historian files, 1988-1991, are also represented.
Arrangement
The records are intellectually arranged in three subseries:
The records are intellectually arranged in three subseries:
Conferences, 1983-1997;
Invited Speakers Series, 1988-1996;
General outreach, 1988-1985.
Series II.A. Conferences, 1983-1997
These records comprise Marilyn Schmitt's and Susan Siegfried's conferences files, 1983-1997 and 1989-1999 respectively. Of particular note are the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and College Art Association/Committee on Electronic Information (CAA/CEI) conference files, which have been listed first, followed by other conferences.
The Art History Information Program (AHIP) helped form the CAA/CEI to encourage the awareness of some of the broad issues facing scholars in their use of electronic information. The inaugural meeting of the CAA/CEI was in September 1990. The long-range goals include continued influence on the development of automated resources; the creation of resources such as an electronic bulletin board for the art-historical community; a directory of online resources for art professionals; a calendar of events; and coordination regarding electronic information.
The 1992 ACLS Conference started the discussion of what eventually became the National Initiative. For information on the 1993 ACLS Conference that directly initiated the National Initiative, see the project files under projects/core projects/Issues and Policy/National Initiative.
Arrangement
The records are intellectually arranged in the following order: American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Conference: Technology, Scholarships, and the Humanities; College Art Association/Committee on Electronic Information (CAA/CEI); and other conferences.

Series II.B. Invited Speakers Series, 1988-1996
The records primarily consist of Deborah Wilde's files on individual art historians and scholars, including correspondence, invitations, and other lecture planning materials, 1988-1991. The records are supplemented by Marilyn Schmitt's Invited Speakers Series files, 1988-1996. The Invited Speaker Series invited prominent art historians and scholars to deliver lectures in their respective areas of expertise. Although most files seem to relate specifically to the Invited Speakers Series, they may also have been used for the Object, Image, and Inquiry (OII) and Dialog Projects that prominantly featured art historians and scholars.
