She joined the Getty Information Institute, where she is Senior Editor in the Vocabulary Program, in 1988. In addition to numerous translations, her publications include the Union List of Artist Names (co-editor with James M. Bower, G.K. Hall, 1994), and “From Authority File to Retrieval Tool: the Union List of Artist Names” (Computers and the History of Art journal, 1997).
