The Getty Research Institute recently collaborated with the Artstor Digital Library to digitize and share approximately 6,500 images from the Julius Shulman photography archive, series II and III. The work of American architectural photographer Julius Shulman (1910– 2009) comprises the most comprehensive visual chronology of modern architecture in the Americas, with a detailed focus on the development of the Los Angeles region. Spanning 70 years, it is a critical visual record of the metropolis’s evolution. The images are available now both on the Artstor Digital Library and in the Getty Research Institute’s digital collections.

Happy New Year!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Hope you’re off to a fabulous start for 2012! ARTstor Digital Library now makes available nearly 1.4 million images in the United States and nearly 1.2 million images internationally. In 2011, we launched over 123,000 new images in the United States and more than 91,000 new images internationally from 29 new collections and expanded the content in 19 existing collections. Highlights include: the renowned Cone Collection of modern art from the Baltimore Museum of Art; extraordinary images of Romanesque architecture from Via Lucis; stunning shots of public art and architecture in Shanghai and the United Arab Emirates from ART on FILE; historic documentation of urban development from the Museum of the City of New York; and iconic works of art from the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (RMN).

We also reached agreements for 50 new collections last year, including the Guggenheim Museum’s permanent collection, exhibition installation photos, and museum architecture; Pre-Columbian Art from the Kerr Archive; new media art from Rhizome; African-American art from the Mott-Warsh Collection; master drawings from the Museo del Prado for the Gernsheim Corpus; and more. In addition, we are delighted to let you know that more institutions, such as the Indianapolis Museum of Art, have signed onto the Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) program in an effort to foster scholarly publishing by providing TIFF image files for free for academic publications.

Last but not least, special thanks to the extraordinary people who have worked with us to make their collections discoverable for teaching and research purposes through the ARTstor Digital Library. Collaboration can be challenging (even in the digital age) and we thank all of our colleagues for making these partnerships really happen! Your collections are making an impact at now more than 1,400 educational institutions in 47 countries. Thanks to all of our contributors, subscribers, and users for your continued support.

Wishing you a very productive and exciting New Year!

All the best,

Christine Kuan
