Game Changer for Art Historians?

Art historians rarely collaborate. The Getty Research Institute is attempting to change this with the recent release of the Getty Scholars’ Workspace, an online environment supporting collaborative art historical and humanities research.  Unhindered by geography, teams of researchers can utilize the following suite of tools:

  • Bibliography Builder
  • Comparison Tool with Digital Light Table
  • Essay Tool to Write, Edit, and Annotate Texts
  • Forum for Project-related Correspondence
  • Image Tool for Cropping, Annotating, and Comparing
  • Manuscript Presentation Tool to Record Transcriptions and Translations
  • Timeline Tool to Create an Illustrated List of Relevant Dates
