In December 2013 the National Institute for Museums and Public Collections signed a letter of agreement with the The J. Paul Getty Trust in order to commence work on the Polish language version of the Art & Architecture Thesaurus designed by the Getty Research Institute.
The Art & Architecture Thesaurus ® (AAT), the Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names ® (TGN), the Union List of Artist Names ® (ULAN), and the Cultural Objects Name Authority ® (CONA) are structured vocabularies that can be used to improve access to information about art, architecture, and material culture. The four Getty vocabularies are intended to provide terminology and other information about the objects, artists, concepts, and places important to various disciplines that specialize in art, architecture, and material culture. The AAT contains generic terms; it contains no iconographic subjects and no proper names.
