Originally, the staff of the Project for the Study of Collecting and Provenance, formerly the Provenance Index, did most of the gathering, inputting, and editing of information for its various database projects. In 1990, encouraged by the Getty Trust to develop international collaborations with like-minded institutions, the Provenance Documentation Collaborative was formed. Since then numerous institutions and individuals have helped to expand and improve the Getty Provenance Index®.
