1 Monet and Hollar: Irregularity among institutions in the extensiveness of records created for the same creator Hollar: More single instances of words = likelier retrieval More headings used did not lead to greater retrieval Monet: Many single instances of words led to more retrieval of one record (left) than of other Monet records from other institutions Wenzel Hollar Strasburg (detail) Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, ON Gift of John Roberts, 1992 AMICO retrievals: 6 Wenceslaus Hollar Bust of Woman with Lace Collar and Braided Hair (detail) Davis Museum and Cultural Center, Wellesley College, Wellesley, MA Gift of Mrs. Toivo Laminan (Margaret Chamberlin, Class of 1929) AMICO retrievals: 24 Wenceslas Hollar Landscape with two farm houses on a hilltop, Bohemia (Detail) Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, San Francisco, CA Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts AMICO retrievals: 10 Description variation among institutions: a well-known creator (Monet) and a lesser-known creator (Hollar) Claude Monet Morning on the Seine, near Giverny (detail) Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA Juliana Cheney Edwards Collection AMICO retrievals: 800 Claude Monet Sailboats on the Seine (detail) Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, San Francisco, CA Gift of Bruno and Sadie Adriani AMICO retrievals: 1105 Claude Monet Water Lilies (detail) The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, OH AMICO retrievals: 1232 EXAMPLES Variations in record description among institutions: suggestions of trends (example of well-known creator – Claude Monet) Variations in record description among institutions: suggestions of trends (example of lesser-known creator – Wenzel Hollar)

3 Genthe: One creator, one institution Differing numbers of headings not corresponding to retrieval Genthe: Varying numbers of headings suggests irregularity in providing access points to the records. Three records (right) from one institution: Inclusion of more headings results in greater retrieval Description variation within an institution: one creator (Genthe) and multiple creators from one institution EXAMPLES Record description variation within an institution: a case involving a single creator (Genthe) Record description variation within an institution: a case involving multiple known and unknown creators Arnold Genthe Grounds and building for the wedding of Rosemary Harden Title devised from Genthe's records title, between 1928 and 1942 (detail) Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, DC AMICO retrievals: 15 Arnold Genthe Turner, Edward, Mrs. Title devised from Genthe's records title, 1930 Apr. 30 (detail) Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, DC AMICO retrievals: 10 Arnold Genthe Travel views of Japan and Korea Title devised from Genthe's records title, 1908 (detail) Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, DC AMICO retrievals: 25 Friedrich Preller the Elder La Serpentara near Olevano (detail) The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, OH Delia E.
