Following closely in the digital footsteps of the University of California Press, the Getty Center in Los Angeles announced yesterday that they’ve made 250 of its art-related books, journals, and catalogues freely available online.
The titles, which represent a range of publishing output since 1966, can be searched by Imprint (Getty Conservation Institute, Getty Research Institute, or J. Paul Getty Museum), Publication Type, Subject Category, and Series.
