This accession consists of 17 Google+ accounts maintained by units throughout the Smithsonian Institution as they existed between March 6 and April 18, 2017. Google+
is a third-party social networking site used for interacting with the public and promoting the Institution's activities, exhibitions, and research. Due to technical issues,
some content may be missing or may not function as expected. Much of the content is older than the date it was captured and some accounts were already inactive at the time
they were captured. Materials are in electronic format.
This accession consists of two domains with mostly duplicate content maintained by Smithsonian Enterprises in association with the Air and Space Magazine. The domains,
crawled May 11, 2014, utilize blog platforms and contain articles, blog posts, and image and video features encompassing every era of aviation and space exploration. Much
of the content is generated based upon the collections of the National Air and Space Museum. Many of the blog content categories on the website had previously been standalone
blogs which were consolidated in approximately 2013. The website has been back-populated with content dating from as early as 1987. Materials are in electronic format.
This accession consists of records documenting Facebook accounts maintained throughout the Smithsonian Institution. Facebook is a third-party social networking site
used for interaction with the general public. In addition to general Smithsonian-wide accounts, many of which are managed by the Office of Public Affairs, the accession documents
the individual accounts of museums, research centers, and programmatic units throughout Smithsonian. Due to technical issues, the crawls of many accounts are incomplete and
may not function properly. Materials are in electronic format.
