Getty Publications Offers Free Titles

Getty Publications, part of the J. Paul Getty Trust, introduced its Virtual Library, which makes more than 250 of its backlist titles freely available for the public to read online or download as PDF files. The books’ subjects include photography, archaeology, architecture, and art history.

Users can search the Virtual Library by title, author, or keyword. Search results include a description, table of contents, and author biographies for most titles. There are also links to WorldCat for finding print editions in libraries and links to purchase books. However, many of these backlist titles are out of print, according to James Cuno, the J. Paul Getty Trust’s president and CEO.

“We are committed to sharing our educational resources as part of our mission to promote knowledge and understanding of the visual arts in all their dimensions,” he says. The Virtual Library contains books published by the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the Getty Research Institute. Books will be added as they become available.
