Objectifying the Archive: Preserving the Physicality of Photographic Collections for Enhanced Access - Shalimar Fojas White, Manager, Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection
Enhancing access to photographic Collections at the GRI - Isotta Poggi, Assistant Curator, Getty Research Institute

Moderator: Emily Una Weirich, Access Services Supervisor/Student, Harvard Fine Arts Library/Simmons

Though online access and digitization are often the focus of discussions surrounding photographic archives and special collections, a great deal of information can still be gained from the original photographic items themselves. Many institutions provide access to their collections online, through online presentations and bibliographic records (among other things) to encourage remote use of these materials. These papers will present examples from two collections - the Image Collections and Fieldwork Archives at Dumbarton Oaks and the Photographs in the Special Collections at the Getty Research Institute - and discuss issues relating to access to the photographic materials held by these two institutions.
