The Built Works Registry (BWR) is a joint endeavor of the Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library at Columbia University, ARTstor and Getty Research Institute (GRI). BWR was awarded a three-year National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
The funds will be used to support the new Built Works Registry (BWR), a community-generated data resource for architectural works and the built environment. BWR will be available to scholars and catalogers from academic and cultural heritage organizations worldwide. BWR data will also be contributed to the Getty Research Institute’s planned Cultural Objects Name Authority (CONA).
