Image Search and Research Survey – Invitation to Participate

We welcome your participation in a Getty Research Institute field survey aimed at understanding how and why scholars search for images in support of their research.

This survey is being conducted as part of PhotoTech, a multiyear project that will digitize a significant portion of the GRI’s Photo Archive and explore new digital methodologies like computer vision and machine learning to enable advanced research into issues of cultural and artistic influence, historical transmission of visual ideas, and networks of exchange.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be available until February 5, 2021.
