The records reflect the early development of the records management and archives policies and practices for the emerging J. Paul Getty Trust. The records date from 1980 to 1990 and include reports and recommendations of archival consultant, Nicholas Olsberg as well as the policies and actions that resulted from Olsberg's advice. Materials include research files; correspondence; policies and procedures; and administrative records.
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 2010 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. The Institutional Records and Archives department of the J. Paul Getty Trust is responsible for managing and preserving the records of the Trust and its programs.
