Notice about using this Web form for contributions to the Getty Vocabularies
The Art & Architecture Thesaurus® (AAT), Getty Thesaurus of
Geographic Names® (TGN), and Union List of Artist Names®
(ULAN) are each a compilation of data from various contributors and various
sources. They are supplemented and updated based upon contributions from
contributing institutions. The databases are licensed to various institutions,
companies, and individuals.
Only data that contains all required fields, complies with the Editorial Guidelines,
and is within scope for the vocabulary will be published. The Vocabulary
Program will incorporate contributed data that meets these criteria into the
merged format of the vocabulary and cite the contributing institution as the
source for names/terms that it has contributed.
By contributing data to the vocabulary, the contributor agrees to its
contributed data becoming a permanent part of the Art & Architecture
Thesaurus®, Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names®, or Union
List of Artist Names®, and grants a perpetual, royalty-free license to
use the data.
The Getty Vocabulary Program maintains the right to final editorial control over
the vocabularies, and reserves the right to refuse data contributions that do
not follow the prescribed guidelines and format, are outside the scope of the
vocabulary, or otherwise inappropriate for the vocabulary.
By contributing data, the contributor warrants that the contributed data does
not infringe any proprietary rights or any statutory copyright, and that
contributed material is not offensive or defamatory.
The Getty Vocabulary Program maintains copyright to the compilation of data in
