Processing Information

Processing of the Maya Initiative records was completed by Lorain Wang in 2019.

Files were transferred off of CD-ROMs and Zip disks in the collection, and each set of files was assigned a unique identifier by the archivist. Gaps in numbering are due to the deaccession of duplicate sets of files. With the exception of two disks, the CDs and Zip disks were removed from the collection. Labels written on the media were transcribed in the container list as titles.

The digital network files were maintained by multiple GCI staff members, which resulted in multiple filing schemes and duplicate files throughout. To facilitate navigation of the network files, the archivist reorganized parts of the folder structure and deleted duplicate folders. Not all duplicate files were deleted, however, to maintain context of files.

For all digital files, a virus scan was performed and no viruses were found. In addition, problematic characters were removed or replaced in filenames due to system limitations of the Getty's digital preservation system. A log was created of the original and new names.

Dates listed for digital content are primarily based on the last modified date.
