Opening Access: Getty’s Approach to Digital Collection Catalogues
Open-access digital catalogues enhance collections by providing an engaging experience with more depth and narrative connections than typical collections pages. Making them available for free through an open-access license increases accessibility and opens doors for a more global audience. In this presentation, we’ll look at Getty’s digital publishing tool, Quire, and the institution’s open approach to producing online collection catalogues. We’ll tour Getty’s most recent publication, exploring how its various features and capabilities uplift the collection. We’ll also share the ways other museums, universities, and libraries have adapted Quire and how these projects ultimately strengthen and amplify an institution’s mission.
