About: Annette Doss and Katie Duvall

Annette Doss I've been a cataloger at the Getty Research Institute since 2009. I was the lead archivist on the Robert Mapplethorpe archive project between 2011 and 2012. Prior to that, I catalogued the Long Beach Museum of Art Video Archive and other audiovisual collections. I hold a master's in Library and Information Science from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a B.A. in Art History from Loyola Marymount University. My research interests include video art preservation and how libraries, archives, and museums work collaboratively to provide integrated access to their collections. Katie Duvall I was a library assistant in special collections cataloging at the Getty Research Institute, processing and cataloging the Robert Mapplethorpe papers and photographs. I currently work in the institutional records and archives department at the Research Institute where I help preserve the current and historical records of all of the Getty's programs (the Museum, the Research Institute, the Conservation Institute, the Trust, and the Foundation). I have a master's degree in Library and Information Science, with a specialization in archival studies, from the University of California, Los Angeles and a B.S. in Film from Boston University.

      "You’ve caught me looking very English today."

      You’ve traveled far! Are you into antiquities?

      "My wife is a classicist—she loves this collection. We’ve never been to the west coast before and actually just arrived yesterday. Only just arrived and I’m already famous!"
