Getty Information Institute, Departments of Scholarly Coordination, Issues and Policy, Network Initiatives, and Special Project records

Container List

Series I. Project files, 1978-1999 54.5 Linear Feet (70 boxes)
The records comprise development, administration, research, and testing files; correspondence; memos; marketing files; conference and meeting files; publications; reports; transcripts and audiocassette recordings; licenses and agreements; grant proposals; curricula vitae; and photography, dating 1978-1999 (bulk 1983-1998), collected in the project files of the Scholarly Coordination, Issues and Policy, Network Initiatives, and Special Projects departments as well as from earlier stages of the Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP), predecessor of the Getty Information Institute (GII). The records reflect the project files of Marilyn Schmitt as a program manager in AHIP, 1983-1998, including as manager of Scholarly Coordination, Issues and Policy, and Special Projects, but also include the project files of staff members Susan Siegfried, Deborah Wilde, Jennifer Trant, and Cynthia Scott.
To a lesser extent, the records also include project files of Kathleen McDonnell, 1996-1998, and Jane Sledge, 1998-1999, when they were the respective heads of Network Initiatives. Materials dating 1978-1982 primarily comprise Nancy Englander project files adopted by Marilyn Schmitt upon her hire in 1983. Post-1998 files are generally Cynthia Scott's and Jane Sledge's project files.
The AHIP project files reflect projects on which Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy staff members consulted, but were not responsible for. The AHIP project files also reflect external working groups and panels in which Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy staff members participated. Both internal consultation and external work group records usually issue from Marilyn Schmitt's project files.
If records have not been otherwise designated, they can be assumed to have originated Marilyn Schmitt's project files. Please note that the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA) advisory committee records listed under AHIP projects provide some of the earliest notes regarding Getty expansion in the early 1980's, notably in regards to the development of AHIP.
Arrangement
These records are organized into three subseries:

Series I.A. Scholarly Coordination projects, 1980-1992;

Series I.B. Issues and Policy/Network Initiatives/Special Projects projects, 1992-1999;

Series I.C. AHIP projects, 1978-1996;
The intellectual arrangement differentiates minor and major projects as well as preliminary discussions that never materialized into projects.
Series I.A. Scholarly Coordination projects, 1980-1992 32.5 Linear Feet (42 boxes)
The records comprise development, administration, research, and testing files; correspondence; memos; conference and meeting files; publications; reports; transcripts and audiocassette recordings; legal agreements; and curricula vitae, dating 1980-1992, from project files of the Scholarly Coordination department and from early stages of the Getty Art History and Information Program (AHIP). Many of the files originate in Marilyn Schmitt's project files as a program officer and manager under AHIP, 1983-1986, and as a program manager under Scholarly Coordination, 1986-1994, although significant records are also found in the project files of Scholarly Coordination staff members Susan Siegfried and Deborah Wilde. Pre-1983 materials comprise Nancy Englander project files adopted by Marilyn Schmitt upon her hire in 1983.
Marilyn Schmitt's core responsibilities from 1983 through 1993 included planning and managing projects involving art-historical computing in collaboration with other institutions; consulting for each project within the program having art-historical content; and being a liaison to the scholarly community, communicating program goals and activities externally, and collecting information on non-Getty projects relating to art-historical automation. Her core projects were Scuola Normale/Getty (SN/G); Dialog; Museum Prototype; and Object, Image, and Inquiry (OII). The Museum Prototype project resulted in the production of an artist name-matching tool, Synoname.
Note that if records have not been otherwise designated, they can be assumed to have originated in Marilyn Schmitt's project files.
Arrangement
The records are arranged in six subseries:

Series I.A.1. Dialog project, 1982-1992;

Series I.A.2. Museum Prototype project, 1980-1992;

Series I.A.3. Object, Image, and Inquiry project (OII),1985-1991;
Series I.A.4. Scuola Normale/Getty project (SN/G), 1983-1990;

Series I.A.5. Other projects, 1983-1992;

Series I.A.6. General discussions, 1983-1991.
Series I.A.1. Dialog Project, 1982-1994
The records consist of project administration files, research files, reports, published articles, conference papers and talks, and interviews (both as audiocassette recordings and transcripts) from the Collaborative Project to Study Online Searching by Scholars (a.k.a. Dialog Project), 1980-1992. To a lesser extent, the materials also consist of development and project records of the Dialog Training Project, 1987-1992, and the Center/AHIP Collaborative Project to Provide Online Searching to Scholars, 1990-1991. Note: if no project is specifically referenced, assume the records originate in the Collaborative Project to Study Online Searching by Scholars.
The Dialog Project is the unofficial name of the congregation of two projects. In 1989 and 1990 the Getty Art History Information Program and the Getty Center for the History of Art and the Humanities collaborated on a project called the Collaborative Project to Study Online Searching by Scholars. The goal of the project was to better understand how scholars in the humanities query electronic databases independent of trained intermediaries and free from the financial constraints imposed by database vendors. For two years the project collected data by documenting the searches conducted by participating scholars in residence at the Center who used the humanities and social sciences databases provided by Dialog Information Services. Interviews and questionnaires of scholars supplemented the computer data.
The Center/AHIP Collaborative Project to Provide Online Searching to Scholars came out of the Dialog project. The name was established in November 1990 to distinguish it from the earlier project to study online searching. The new project's goal was to train a core of scholars to be able to conduct independent online searching of electronic databases, specifically in the humanities and social science databases provided by Dialog Information Services. These two projects were primarily the responsibility of Deborah Wilde of the Scholarly Coordination department with assistance from Susan Siegfried and Marilyn Schmitt.
The Getty also subsidized database training for art historians in the use of Dialog Information Services. This Dialog Subsidy Project seems to have been distinct from the projects above. This project was primarily overseen by Susan Siegfried.

Series I.A.2. Museum Prototype Project, 1980-1992
The records consist of the development, project, system testing, correspondence, marketing, conference, and publication files of the Getty Art History Information Program's Museum Prototype and the Museum Prototype Data Merge Projects, 1980-1992. The Museum Prototype working files, ranging from its foundation in 1982 to its termination in 1986, appear to be reasonably thorough. Each of the three phases of the Museum Prototype Data Merge Project, 1987-1991, that followed are also well represented, along with the subsequent tests, reports, and publications that followed.
The Museum Prototype Project, 1980-1986, aimed to computerize and set standards for the exchange of information about museum objects. Its dual purpose in achieving this goal was to make available the scholarly information contained in museum catalog records and to serve museum collection-management needs. Participants included the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the J. Paul Getty Museum; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Metropolitan Museum, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Art Museum, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey; and the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College Hanover, New Hampshire.
This project was initiated by Nancy Englander, then taken over by Marilyn Schmitt soon after her arrival in 1983. Clare Sheriden appears to have been an administrative assistant for Marilyn Schmitt and a source of some records. The project was terminated in 1986.
The Museum Prototype Data Merge Project, 1987-1992, aimed to merge the museum object databases inherited from the earlier project. The project quickly became focused on the artist names component, out of which develops smARTname, a name-matching computer program designed to automatically match the many possible forms of a single personal name. The name of the software changed to Synoname in 1991 and was ready for test release to outside institutions the same year.
Susan Siegfried became primarily responsible for this project in 1988. Although most of the records issued from Siegfried's files, Marilyn Schmitt maintained an active role in the project as well. Their files have been intellectually integrated here.
Chronology of Project
1982: Nancy Englander negotiates with OnLine to provide a computer system to accommodate Getty projects including what will become the Museum Prototype Project.
1983: Nancy Englander takes charge of the Museum Pilot Project. Marilyn Schmitt is brought on board as a Program Officer. In November William Y. Arms from Dartmouth University becomes the Project Leader on a consultant basis. In December, the Museum Prototype Project is officially constituted as one of nine special projects within the Getty Art History Information Program. Other projects include RILA, the Art and Architecture Thesaurus, the Provenance Index, Architectural Drawings Advisory Group, Census of Antique Art and Architecture Known to the Renaissance, Conway Library Project, and the Witt Library Project.
1984: Marilyn Schmitt is promoted to Program Manager and becomes the Getty representative in charge of the project. OnLine is abandoned. In November, William Arms leaves the project.
1985: Michael Ester takes over as director of AHIP. Russell Sale becomes the project manager reporting to Marilyn Schmitt and Michael Ester. Willoughby becomes the computer developer for the project. By this year, each museum participating in the project has created an experimental database of its paintings.
1986: Russell Sale leaves the Getty in the spring of 1986. He lists the following staff and their responsibilities: Marilyn Schmitt, policy decisions; Peter Meitzler, user support and Informix system changes; and Vicki Porter and "Luisa" for day-to-day administration and analysis. Citing structural and conceptual difficulties, the project is terminated in December 1986.
1987: The Getty project group continues with their work to prepare an analysis of the data it has assembled. The project is referred to as the Museum's Data Normalization Project, which later becomes named the Museum Prototype Data Merge Project. In the first part of the project, the artists' names from the original project's eight databases of paintings are to be linked to the name authorities of RILA and to the Provenance Index records. Staff are listed as Marilyn Schmitt as Program Manager, Aaron Gross as Programmer, and Julie Bernstein as Editorial Assistant. Susan Siegfried joins the program by the end of the year. Patricia Harpring's report on the Museum Prototype Project is suspended and never completed.
1988: The first component of the artists' name matching project is completed in June, along with the Museum Prototype Data Merge Project Phase II Progress Report and the Artists' Name Matching Tool. From this develops smARTname, a name-matching computer program designed to automatically match the many possible forms of a single personal name. It used an ordered sequence of twelve algorithms for pattern matching that include both character- and word-matching techniques. The smARTname system is comprised of the hierarchically-structured Artist Name Matching Tool (ANM Tool) and the smARTname Report Generator. Julie Bernstein becomes responsible for authority analysis and Robin Garcia is added as a systems analyst. At an unknown point, Susan Siegfried assumes responsibility for the project, reporting to Marilyn Schmitt.
1991: Because of existing copyright, smARTname is changed to Synoname (application date May 1991). As of January 1991, the name-matching software is ready for test release to outside institutions.

Series I.A.3. Object, Image, and Inquiry (OII) Project, 1985-1991
The records comprise transcripts and audio cassette recordings of interviews, correspondence, legal agreements, curricula vitae of the interviewees, and photography related to the Getty Art History Information Program's Object, Image, and Inquiry (OII) Interview Project, 1985-1991. The interviews are represented in audio cassette recordings, print records including transcripts, or five-inch floppy disks. Bound transcripts of the interviews are available in finding aid IA20025, "Interviews regarding the study of art history."
In 1985 the J. Paul Getty Trust's Art History Information Program (AHIP) joined with Brown University's Institute for Research in Information and Scholarship (IRIS) to investigate the process of art-historical research. The project expanded in January 1986 with a nine-month, collaborative study of the process that art historians follow as they conduct research. The OII project sought to discover what kinds of information art historians need, where and how they search for it, how they collect and organize it, and what use they make of it. The ultimate goal of the study was to discover what kinds of automated tools would be of use to art historians.
The study developed as two distinct projects: an interview and a case study project. The former consisted of eighteen half-day interviews; the latter, of two five-month case studies. A collaborative team of three directed the study: Mr. William O. Beeman, Director of the Office of Program Analysis at IRIS; Dr. Marilyn Schmitt, Program Manager in charge of Scholarly Coordination at AHIP; and Elizabeth Bakewell, Social Science Research Analyst in the OPA office. AHIP art historian Carol McMichael Reese assisted the three in the writing of the report. The book Object, Image, and Inquiry: The Art Historian at Work (1988) soon followed.
As a postscript to the eighteen interviews conducted in 1986, seven more interviews with architectural historians were conducted between March 1988 and May 1989. The purpose of this later project was to examine research practices in a particular field of specialization, in contrast to the more general investigations that characterized the earlier interviews. This AHIP controlled project included Marilyn Schmitt (Program Manager), Carol McMichael Reese (Research Consultant), and Deborah Wilde (Research Associate). The transcript editing was overseen by Katherine Smith (Research Consultant and Editor). Interviewees edited the transcripts and signed access agreements, 1989-1991. Only those that signed these agreements have been compiled in individual binders for research use.
Arrangement
Records are categorized in the following order: administration, final transcripts, interviews recorded on audiocassette, interviewee files, and publication records.
Administration, 1985-1990
Records consist of Marilyn Schmitt's project administration files, primarily oriented around the Object, Image, Inquiry [OII] project and publication. These comprise the earliest records about the project.

Series I.A.4. Scuola Normale/Getty (SN/G) Project, 1983-1990
The records comprise administration and conference files, meeting minutes, reports and articles, status reports, agreements, and training materials regarding the collaboration between the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa and the Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP), named the Scuola Normale/Getty (SN/G) project, 1983-1990. Marilyn Schmitt's project files best document the early years of the SN/G project, while Deborah Wilde's files provide a good supplement to the later years. One Susan Siegfried folder on the project, 1987-1988, has also been included.
In 1978, the Scuola Normale held the First International Conference on Automatic Processing of Art History Data and Documents in Pisa. In 1983, the Getty was approached to provide support for the Second International Conference. The conference took place on September 24-27, 1984, and spawned three publications: The orange Census (a compilation of abstracts), the blue Papers (expansions of the abstracts), and the green Proceedings (papers actually given, responses by panelists, texts of demonstrations, and minutes of an extra day's summary and resolutions).
The goal was to make Pisa the central clearing house for an ongoing publication that would disseminate all information on art-historical computing. One result of that aim was "The SN/G Report on Data Processing Projects in Art" published in 1988, a sequel to the "Census: Computerization in the History of Art" published in 1984. The report gathered and disseminated information on automated projects in the history of art and related fields. A subsequent project developed an information retrieval system to serve as an electronic index to the published edition of the SN/G Report.

Series I.B Issues and Policy/Network Initiatives/Special Projects projects, 1991-1999 13 Linear Feet (17 boxes)
The records comprise development, administration, and research files; correspondence; memos; conference and meeting files; reports and publications; history and planning files; licenses and agreements; grant proposals; and surveys, dating 1991-1999 (bulk 1993-1999), collected in the project files of the Issues and Policy, Network Initiatives, and Special Projects departments of the Getty Information Institute (GII) and its predecessor, the Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP). The records primarily reflect Marilyn Schmitt's files, but do also include the project files of staff members Susan Siegfried, Cynthia Scott, and Jennifer Trant from Issues and Policy, 1994-1996, and Special Projects, 1996-1999.
To a lesser extent, the records also consist of project files of Kathleen McDonnell, 1996-1998, and Jane Sledge, 1998-1999, when they were the respective heads of Network Initiatives. Post-1998 files generally comprise Cynthia Scott's project files under Special Projects and Jane Sledge's project files under Network Initiatives. Network Initiatives project files, 1996-1998, under Kathleen McDonnell are not well-represented, although Jane Sledge's files, 1998-1999, provide some evidence of Network Initiatives activities. Note that if records have not been otherwise designated, they can be assumed to have originated in Marilyn Schmitt's project files.
Arrangement
The records are arranged in seven subseries:

Subseries I.B.1. Imaging Initiative, 1991-1997;

Subseries I.B.2. International Documentation Standards for the Protection of Cultural Objects, 1992-1999;

Subseries I.B.3. National Initiative, 1993-1994;

Subseries I.B.4. National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage (NINCH), 1994-1995;

Subseries I.B.5. Networked Access, 1994-1996;

Subseries I.B.6. Opening Exhibition/Video Wall project of the Special Projects, 1994-1998;

Subseries I.B.7. Other projects, 1994-1999.
Series I.B.1. Imaging Initiative, 1991-1997
Materials comprise correspondence, memos, conference and meeting files, grant proposals, agreements, reports, and publications of the Getty Art History Program's Imaging Initiatives program. These records date from 1991-1997 and consist mostly of the files of Jennifer Trant, hired on a two-year contract (plus a short extension) as Manager of Imaging Initiatives, 1994-1996. Susan Siegfried was peripherally involved with project, presumably as a project monitor. Her few records have been intellectually integrated into Jennifer Trant's under the appropriate topics. The few 1997 records pertaining to this project referencing Eleanor Fink, director of GII, and Michele D'Amico, a project assistant, have also been intellectually integrated.
The Imaging Initiative was established in the spring of 1994 and was absorbed into the Network Initiatives department in 1996. The goal of the initiative was to leverage the benefits of electronic imaging to the arts and humanities by working to foster standards required for capture, distribution, and access. A March 1994 meeting brought together arts and humanities professionals to discuss the barriers to universal and comprehensive access to images and information in art and to suggest steps to overcome them. The group provided the framework within which AHIP's Imaging Initiative would act, identifying standards, intellectual property, and education as the priorities.
Standards: The standards priority focused on three parts: Image Quality, Technical Standards, and Project Guidelines. A meeting took place in spring 1995 regarding image quality. The Coalition for Networked Information meeting in October 1994 introduced the questions to be answered for technical standards, from which a working group was formed to continue the dialogue. Project guidelines were explored in the Image Collections Implementers Workshop held in Rochester, New York.
Intellectual Property: Extensive work was conducted within the Intellectual Property area with the Museum Educational Site Licensing (MESL) project. In 1994 a management committee was formed and a call for participation in the project was issued, resulting in the selection of seven universities and six museums. This two year collaboration launched with MUSE Educational Media sought to define the terms and conditions for educational use of museum images and information. Geoffrey Samuels was the contact person from MUSE, Howard Besser the principal investigator for the project.
Education: A series of publications and presentations were planned to bring information to the cultural heritage community. The first of these, "Introduction to Imaging" by Jennifer Trant and Howard Besser, introduced the basic concepts and vocabulary of digital imaging. It was published in 1995 and made available on AHIP's Web site. Jennifer Trant, with Michael Large, also published an analytical bibliography "CD-ROMs for Art and Design" outlining the potential and pitfalls of current CD-ROMs.

Series I.B.2. International Documentation Standards for the Protection of Cultural Objects, 1992-1999
The records comprise Getty Art History Information Program files maintained by Marilyn Schmitt and Cynthia Scott consisting of correspondence, memoranda, notes, conference and meeting materials, surveys, and publications, 1992-1999. The project intended to establish documentation standards for the protection of cultural objects. A conference on Documentation Standards for the Protection of Cultural Objects on July 8-9, 1993 brought together national and international agencies to set forth an agenda on this issue [some early information on this conference and project can be found under Imaging Initiative under "Cultural Property (Eleanor Fink)."] A world-wide survey of documentation practices was subsequently carried out and used as the foundation for this project.
The Collaborative Conservation Terminology Project was begun by the Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP) and the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) in 1990 to standardize conservation terminology. This project led to the Condition Documentation Standards for the Protection of Cultural Objects, a collaborative project designed to define core data standards for the unique identification of cultural objects. An international conservation working group of specialists was established to review existing categories and develop recommendations for the larger AHIP initiative. Joseph Busch and Suzanne Deal Booth, AHIP, and Kathleen McDonnell, GCI, were each given as contact people in separate brochures for this project.
Marilyn Schmitt was primarily responsible for this project during the Issues and Policy era, 1995-1996. However Cynthia Scott assisted with the project during this era as well. Beginning with the adoption of the project by Special Projects in 1996, Cynthia Scott took on a greater role with the project.
Arrangement
Because of the volume and type of records regarding this project in both Marilyn Schmitt and Cynthia Scott's files, the materials have been kept separate to clarify context. Because of the absence of any apparent arrangement within each person's files, the categories, except for a set in each that were maintained chronologically, have been listed in alphabetical order.

Series I.B.3. National Initiative, 1993-1994
The records comprise correspondence, memos, conference and meeting files, reports, and publications of the Getty Art History Information Program's National Initiative project, 1987, 1990-1995. The records include the development of a letter to the Executive Committee (whose members were appointed by the President of the United States) with a draft report of "Humanities and Arts on the Information Highways: A Profile," the signature report of the initiative.
The majority of the National Initiative records originate in Susan Siegfried's files when she was Research Projects Manager at the Issues and Policy Department, 1994-1995. Susan Siegfried's project files contain topics other than the National Initiative, although this was her primary job responsibility during these years. Marilyn Schmitt's records, as monitor of the project, are also represented.
The National Initiative began with discussions made during the 1992 American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Conference on Technology, Scholarship and the Humanities, but which didn't translate into action until the next year's conference in 1993. Three of the primary organizations involved in that conference, the Getty Art History Information Program, the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), and the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) came together in November 1993 to form the Humanities and Arts on the Information Highway: A National Initiative. This initiative focused on the future of cultural heritage information and was dedicated to marshalling support to influence the National Information Infrastructure (NII). For additional information, see the ACLS Conference records located under outreach/conferences/Schmitt.
Susan Siegfried, Research Projects Manager in the Issues and Policy department, assumed responsibility for the initiative from late 1993 through the early part of 1994. The initiative convened two working group meetings in the spring of 1994, one on electronic resources and the other on technical requirements. This work resulted in a publicly issued report in the fall of 1994 titled "Humanities and Arts on the Information Highway: A Profile."
Chuck Henry, Director, Vassar College Libraries, was co-chair with Patricia Tobin for the Working Group on Technical Requirements. He was also co-chair with Susan Siegfried for the Ad Hoc Steering Committee for Humanities and Arts on the Information Highways: A National Initiative.

Series I.B.5. Networked Access, 1994-1996
The records consist of the Getty Art History Information Program's Networked Access project files, maintianed by Susan Sigfried and Marilyn Schmitt. Materials include correspondence, meeting materials and planning documents, memoranda, reports and pubilcations, dating 1994-1996. Following the reorganization of the National Initiative as the National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage (NINCH), AHIP launched its Networked Access Project, a project dedicated to convening groups of humanities and arts organizations to address goals that would need to be achieved to foster electronic access to cultural heritage information in a networked environment.
As part of the Networked Access Project, AHIP convened a meeting of producers and distributors of databases of cultural heritage information to discuss common goals and standards that could lead to a "knowledge base" for reporting and retrieving information about digital projects in the humanities, arts, and culture. This meeting, held February 15-16, 1995, resulted in a collaborative project entitled Networked Information Sources in the Arts and Humanities (NISAH). NISAH aimed to further explore ways to share knowledge of humanities information online.
In early 1995, AHIP sponsored a meeting to convene technical experts to take a look at the barriers that existed to providing networked access to cultural heritage information. AHIP enlisted a small group of nationally recognized experts to create a research agenda to provide a prioritized set of problems and solutions to these issues. This project became known as the Research Agenda, officially the Research Agenda for Networked Cultural Heritage. In a demonstration of the use of networks for scholarly exchange, the resulting research papers, along with a document synthesizing their main points, were mounted on the Internet for six weeks of public electronic discussion. The completed Research Agenda was published in 1996.
Susan Siegfried was the person responsible for this project. The few Marilyn Schmitt records on this project have been incorporated into Susan Siegfried's extensive project records.
Arrangement
The records have been intellectually arranged into three sections: overall strategy for the project, the Knowledge Base/Networked Sources in the Arts and Humanities aspect of the project, and the Technical Experts/Research Agenda aspect of the project.

G7:
As part of its international economic program, the G-7 group of nations undertook a pilot project on electronic museums and galleries with the goal of providing open access to the world's cultural heritage collections. AHIP represented the U.S. in developing and refining this project, which became known as the G7 project, Multimedia Access to World Cultural Heritage. The goals of the project were to encourage speedy digitization, promote interconnectedness of databases, facilitate access to a broad audience, and advance the protection of intellectual property rights. Most of the records originate in Marilyn Schmitt's project files, including some of the 1996 records found in Kathleen McDonnell's Network Initiatives files.

Los Angeles Concept:
AHIP and the Center for Education in the Arts (GCEA) collaborated to develop an initiative called the Los Angeles Concept in which local cultural organizations could join to create an online cultural community for Los Angeles. For additional information, see the outreach/conference/Siegfried listing for the AHIP/CEA Day with the "Education and Cultural Heritage: Solid Partners for the NII, Current and Emerging Projects and Approaches" roundtable.
The Los Angeles Concept established the Los Angeles Culture Net, an electronic discussion list enabling members of the cultural and educational communities to use networks to communicate and become stakeholders in the "visioning process." This led to a proposal called the Culture Lab in 1996 in which Culture Net would be leveraged to provide access to cultural content in ways that are educational, exciting, and entertaining.
The Los Angeles Concept project also resulted in a database of local electronic cultural content. It was hoped that further demonstration projects would be developed to coincide with the Getty Center's opening year (these developments may be represented under the Opening Exhibition/Video Wall project).
During the era of the Issues and Policy department (1995-1996), the records originate in the project files of Marilyn Schmitt and Susan Siegfried. The post-1996 Special Projects records originate in the project files of Marilyn Schmitt and Cynthia Scott.
Note: A summary of the projects, June 1996, puts the Los Angeles Concept project and its various developments under the Network Initiatives department umbrella, although a later November 1996 summary shows these projects under the Special Projects department. Although the Special Projects department materials did contain some Los Angeles Concept project files, the party with primary responsibility for this project remains unverified.

Series I.C AHIP projects, 1978-1996 9 Linear Feet (11 boxes)
The materials document internal and external projects that staff members of the Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy departments contributed to, but did not have responsibility for, 1978-1996. The project files also include records related to panels and working groups in which staff members of Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy participated. Prior to 1986, the files originate in Marilyn Schmitt's project files when she was a program manager under the Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP). The primary source of the records dating between 1986-1996 is Marilyn Schmitt's project files as program manager of the Scholarly Coordination and Issues and Policy departments. Records from the project files of Susan Siegfried and Deborah Wilde are also included. Materials include correspondence, meeting notes, working files, marketing records, and publications.
Marilyn Schmitt and her staff were engaged as consultants for and participants in the following projects: Architectural Encoding, Art and Architecture Thesaurus (AAT), Avery Index, Art Information Task Force (AITF), Bibliography of the History of Art/International Repertory of the Literature of Art (BHA/RILA), The Census of Antique Art and Architecture Known to the Renaissance, iconography studies, Image Presentation, Photo Archive, Provenance Index, Thesaurus Artis Universalis (TAU), and Witt. Staff participation in these projects and working groups has variably included aspects of outreach, internal meetings, publications, promotions, and international cooperation. Note that the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts [CASVA] advisory committee material contains some of the earliest notes regarding Getty expansion in the early 1980's, notably in regards to the development of AHIP.

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.
American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Conference: Technology, Scholarships, and the Humanities:

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.

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.
