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


Getty Conservation Institute Maya Initiative records, 1972-2016, undated (bulk 1996-2016)
Series III. Joya de Cerén, 1996-2016, undated 18.21 GB (16,189 files) 6.48 Linear Feet (8 boxes, 4 videocassettes)
These records, dating from 1996 to 2016 and undated, document the GCI's collaboration from 1999 to 2002 with the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y el Arte (CONCULTURA) in El Salvador to develop a site management plan for the archaeological site of Joya de Cerén. Records are in digital and analog form and include drafts and copies of the final management plan, which was completed in the summer of 2002 and presented publicly to local and national authorities and stakeholders and to the vice president of El Salvador by the GCI and CONCULTURA. The resulting plan includes three components: the narrative of the plan, a full mapping of the site and projects, and a detailed description of projects. In addition, an executive summary was developed in English, Spanish, and French to promote the plan and to summarize its contents and proposals for potential financial support. Records also include support documents for the management plan such as project planning files, archival and bibliographic research, and condition assessment drawings and reports. The condition assessment included a detailed topographic survey of the site; an architectural survey of select structures; environmental monitoring; and analysis of (decay mechanisms) potential biological threats, site and structure materials, hydrology, and site drainage. There are also trip and meeting reports; photographs; videocassettes containing interviews and footage of the site; presentation materials; copies of signed agreements with CONCULTURA; and a copy of Conservation Management Planning: Putting Theory into Practice: The Case of Joya de Cerén, El Salvador, a GCI publication regarding the project. There are also files associated with a 2005 experts meeting convened by CONCULTURA and FUNDAR (Fundacion Nacional de Arquelogia) to discuss the management plan and conservation strategies for Joya de Cerén. A small portion of the records pertain to the El Salvador Earthquake Relief project.
Digital content consists of files copied from CDs (spread throughout the series) and project files originally maintained on the GCI's shared network drive (listed under the "Digital network files" category). They include a mix of text, image, database, and CAD formats. Note that in 2015, a GCI consultant migrated CAD files for the project to the 2014 version of AutoCAD and reestablished external references. Those files are listed under the "Digital network files" category.
Arrangement
Records are arranged alphabetically in the following seven categories: Digital network files; Graphic documentation; Management plan; Planning; Presentations and dissemination; Reference materials; and Reports, working documents, and data. Note that content under "Digital network files" also overlap with the other six categories.
