These records were generated by the J. Paul Getty Trust Publications offices and departments and its related Editorial Committee
during the course of day-to-day operations. The records comprise correspondence, memoranda, publishing proposals, budget information
(including information from the J. Paul Getty Museum bookstore and the Getty Education Institute), and legal documents, 1975-1999.
The bulk of the material contains meeting minutes and agendas; many of these meetings were the occasion to discuss publishing
proposals. The records also include documentation on the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, and miscellaneous files
regarding publishing activities of the Museum.
The J. Paul Getty Trust is a not-for-profit institution, educational in purpose and character, that focuses on the visual
arts in all of their dimensions. As of 2009 the Trust supports and oversees four programs: the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty
Foundation, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the Getty Research Institute. The J. Paul Getty Trust and Getty programs
serve a varied audience from two locations: the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Getty Villa near Malibu, California.
