This accession consists of audiovisual materials produced and collected by Smithsonian Productions and its predecessor, the Office of Telecommunications. Productions
in this accession include "Smithsonian at the Capitol" and "House of Wonders." Records also document Smithsonian Institution events (such as the Smithsonian's 150th Birthday
party), lectures, news specials, promotions and public service announcements, regents meetings, and interviews. Materials include masters, originals, and copies on a variety
of videotapes, 16mm films, 1" and 2" magnetic tapes, digital audio tapes (DAT), audiocassettes, and 1/4" audiotapes. Some materials are in electronic format.
Restrictions pertaining to the use of these materials may apply (based on contracts/copyright). Access restrictions may also apply if viewing/listening copies are not currently available. Viewing/listening copies can be made for a fee. Contact reference staff for details.
This accession consists of the Smithsonian Institution 150th Anniversary website. This website was published in coordination with other events held by the Smithsonian
to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the institution. At the time of transfer, the website is clearly in disrepair. In addition to the public website, the files include
test versions, drafts, internal notes, and retired pages. Materials are in electronic format.
