Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records which document the oversight and review process at the National Museum of American History (NMAH) in regards to exhibitions, public programs, symposia, websites, productions, and performances. In particular, the activities of the Exhibitions and Program Committee (EPC) which was created in 1996. The EPC was charged with providing oversight and guidance of exhibitions and related public programs, as well as advising the Director of NMAH and the Management Committee in regards to all interpretive programs.

In 2005, the EPC was reorganized as the Interpretive Planning Advisory Committee (IPAC) and Interpretive Review Committee (IRC). The IPAC was responsible for developing and maintaining the procedures and guidelines for proposing exhibitions and other public presentations. After evaluating proposals, the IPAC would make recommendations based on the merits (content and visitor experiences) of proposals to the IRC. The IRC in turn assesses the proposals from the perspective of NMAH's strategic framework and goals, paying attention to the feasibility of proposal and level of priority within the contact of NMAH's other activities and projects.

In 2011, IPAC and IRC were reorganized into the Committee on Exhibitions and Programs (CEP) and Project Review Committee (PRC).

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, guidelines, meeting agendas, meeting minutes and notes, proposals, exhibition schedules, videotapes, images, and clippings.
