Finding Usable Digital Data – Getty

Digital Humanities scholarship thrives when sources are accessible and unrestricted. This blog details the contents of six different sites that offer a blend of open and restricted materials.

  • Getty Museum
  • Getty’s mission statement says it is “a cultural and philanthropic institution dedicated to the presentation, conservation, and interpretation of the world’s artistic legacy.”  The website makes available Getty’s vast art collections dating from antiquity to the present and its special collections and library. Getty has an “open content program” that makes certain images available for teaching, research, and “enjoyment.” The website has a number of search tools and databases that make cultural heritage sources accessible.
