Records comprise reports, meeting materials and handouts, correspondence and memoranda, budgets, contracts, publication development
and design material, images, audiocassettes, and ARIS workshop materials, dating 1994-2009 and undated, created and maintained
by the Field Projects Division of the Getty Conservation Institute. The materials concern the development, operation, and
results of Field Projects' Recording, Documentation, and Information Management (RecorDIM) Initiative. Some of the planning,
publication, and ARIS workshop materials are in digital form, consisting of text, database, PowerPoint, image, website, and
CAD files. The majority of the records were authored by project director and Field Projects Head, Francois LeBlanc, and by
consultant Robin Letellier. Some of the files were also maintained by Christopher Gray, a senior project specialist in Field
Projects, and Rand Eppich, project specialist and manager of the Institute's Digital Lab.
The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI), a part of the J. Paul Getty Trust, was initially planned in 1982 and began full operation
in 1985. Since its inception, the GCI has engaged in a program of scientific research, educational activities, documentation,
and the dissemination of information through publications, conferences, workshops, and public programs that include research
opportunities for professionals and public lectures. In addition, the Institute has conducted international field projects
in Asia, Africa, North and South America, and Europe. The GCI's endeavors are designed to serve the needs of the conservation
profession by undertaking work that tackles broad practical or theoretical questions of significance to the conservation field.
The Institute develops and refines tools for conservation and shares its expertise with institutions and organizations worldwide
so that its efforts have the greatest possible benefit to the practice of conservation.
