The Getty Conservation Institute has completed the first phase of a major redesign of its website (getty.edu/conservation), which simplifies navigation of the site and adds an improved search capability. These changes, now live, are intended to greatly expand the user's ability to access the site's several thousand web pages.

The resources available on the GCI website include descriptions and videos of Institute projects; over one hundred free publications in PDF, as well as links to purchase GCI books; teaching and learning resources developed as part of GCI courses; full text of GCI newsletter editions dating back to 1991; lectures and conferences, including selected videos of presentations; information on the GCI Conservation Guest Scholar program and graduate internships; and access to other resources, including AATA Online and project bibliographies.

The changes to the website increase the accessibility to this variety of materials through a new navigation structure that better reflects the GCI's work in the areas of built heritage, collections, and conservation education. The new search interface added to the site now enables the website visitor to search the entire GCI site according to thirteen specific core areas of work, which range from archaeological site conservation and management, to artists' materials and collections research, to conservation pedagogy.

We invite you to visit the redesigned website and let us know what you think by writing us at gciweb@getty.edu.
