The Getty Research Portal has a new face

The Getty Research Portal’s online library of digitized art history texts has been expanded with new website features and more contributing libraries in order to improve the features currently offered to its users.

The Getty Research Portal™ is a free web platform for accessing  a quite extensive collection of digitized art history texts from a range of institutions. Researchers can search and download complete digital copies of publications devoted to art, architecture, material culture, and related fields.

The Portal is a collaborative project initiated by the Getty Research Institute in 2012 and founded with a group of international contributors, including: the Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library at Columbia University, the Biblioteca de la Universidad de Málaga, the Frick Art Reference Library, the Heidelberg University Library, the Max-Planck-Institut für Kunstgeschichte in Rome, the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel, the Menil Library Collection in Houston, the Ryerson & Burnham Libraries — Art Institute of Chicago, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Library and Archives in New York, the Warburg Institute Library in London and the Thomas J. Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
