Getty Launches Expanded Search Function on its Website
The Getty Search Gateway, which is now available online, provides streamlined searches through the Museums collections and the Getty Research Institutes library catalog, digital collections, and collection inventories and finding aids.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- 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 Gettys vast resources of information about the visual arts.

The Getty Search Gateway, which is now available online, provides streamlined searches through the Museums collections and the Getty Research Institutes library catalog, digital collections, and collection inventories and finding aids.

Were now able to provide greater access to more resources, and bring them together more quickly, said Jim Cuno, President and CEO of the J. Paul Getty Trust. The Getty Search Gateway will be an aid to scholars, educators, and researchers, but its also friendly enough to be used by members of the general public who are eager to learn more about the visual arts.

Previously, researchers had to conduct searches separately through the Getty Research Institutes various catalogs and databases and the Museums 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 Museums collection. Now information about most of the Museums collection is available online, along with an expanded set of images. Viewers can share or post the information they access through Getty Search Gateway.

This is a great step forward in fulfilling the Gettys mission of disseminating knowledge about the visual arts, and in making our collections, archives, and databases more available worldwide, said Cuno.
