"Getty Launches Expanded Search Function on its Website"
The Getty recently unveiled a newly expanded search function on its website that will allow scholars, researchers, and the interested public to better access the Getty’s vast resources of information about the visual arts.
The Getty Search Gateway, which is now available online, provides streamlined searches through the Museum’s collections and the Getty Research Institute’s library catalog, digital collections, and collection inventories and finding aids.
Previously, researchers had to conduct searches separately through the Getty Research Institute’s various catalogs and databases and the Museum’s collection. The Getty Search Gateway conducts searches using a consolidated index returning an increased number of relevant results. The most frequently used resources are currently available through the Getty Search Gateway, and additional resources will continue to come online in the months ahead.
In addition to streamlining the search process, the Getty Search Gateway is able to make available information about many more objects from the Museum’s collection. Now information about most of the Museum’s collection is available online, along with an expanded set of images. Viewers can share or post the information they access through Getty Search Gateway.
