In early February, an extensive upgrade was completed for AATA Online (aata.getty.edu). AATA Online—a key resource for the conservation field—is the GCI's comprehensive database of over 117,000 abstracts of literature related to the preservation and conservation of material cultural heritage.

While the site's user interface is similar to the previous version, a number of improvements to functionality have been made. These include: faster searching; access to special features without a login; easier-to-use consolidated search screens; greater ability to refine searches; results from Category Browsing and Refine Search now included in Search History; and easier customization of results. The ability to export to EndNote, to ProCite, or as text files is now also available.
