Records comprise reports, meeting materials and handouts, correspondence and memoranda, budgets, contracts, publication development
and design material, images, and training materials, dating 1994-2007, 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.
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.
