New open access e-book collection

Monday, 27 January, 2014 by Nick Brown

Last week Getty Publications launched a Virtual Library providing free access to over 250 backlist titles. The collection comprises titles published by the J.Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute and the Getty Conservation Institute and cover a diverse range of materials including exhibition catalogues, monographs, key art historical texts, journals, symposium papers and works on conservation. There is significant crossover with the library’s book collection including Cezanne in the Studio (currently in the short loan collection), Illuminating the Renaissance, Riegl’s The Group Portraiture of Holland and The Conservation of Wall Paintings, edited by the Courtauld’s Sharon Cather.
