Getty Conservation Institute Maya Initiative records, 1972-2016, undated


Getty Conservation Institute Maya Initiative records, 1972-2016, undated (bulk 1996-2016)
Series I. Administrative and general files, 1993-2015, undated 1.46 Linear Feet (5 boxes, 14 videocassettes) 1.72 GB (3,627 files)
The records in this series date from 1995 to 2015 and undated and consist primarily of administrative files for the Maya Initiative. While this series mostly pertains to Copán and Joya de Cerén, some of the files relate to the El Salvador Earthquake Relief project. Materials are a mix of analog and digital files and include signed project agreements with the GCI's partners, consultant contracts, project proposals and summaries, correspondence, budgets, meeting agenda and minutes, field campaign reports, work plans, videocassettes, a press release, and external articles about the initiative. The files document not only the logistical planning and progress of the projects but also the initial planning meetings that led to the Maya Initiative. The videos consist of recordings of the initial planning meeting, site visits, and interviews. Additionally, a few folders were placed in this series because they contain a mix of Joya de Cerén and Copán files. These include digital images for a GCI open house poster on the Maya Initiative project, Copán and Joya de Cerén digital images and slides, and reference materials on the Mayan sites.
While two sets of digital files are from CDs, most of the digital material in this series were originally maintained on the GCI's shared network drive and are listed here under the "Digital network files" category. They consist of a mix of text, image, database, ArcView, and CAD formats.
