Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative: OSCI: Getty Museum Foundation

The Getty Museum Foundation (OSCI) is helping museums make the transition from printed museum scholarly catalogues to multimedia, web-based scholarly catalogues that can be freely accessed by anyone using a computer, tablet, or smartphone. These web-based scholarly catalogues make available published detailed information about individual works within a museum collection, so any viewer can better understand and appreciate the Art History behind each individual artwork. Getty's "Online Scholarly Catalogues Initiative" (OSCI), launched in 2009, includes eight major Art Galleries.
