Finding Aids to Official Records of the Smithsonian Institution Archives

Accession 14-009

Smithsonian Institution

Calendars of Events, 1972-2013

Repository: Smithsonian Institution Archives, Washington, D.C. Contact us at osiaref@si.edu.
Creator: Smithsonian Institution
Title: Calendars of Events
Dates: 1972-2013
Quantity:
Collection: Accession 14-009
Language of Materials: English
Summary:

This accession consists of the online exhibition directory for all Smithsonian Institution museums in multiple formats - backups of the directory files from September 6, 2013 (SQL and Microsoft Access files) and a crawled version of the website from September 26, 2013. The directory content is coordinated by the Office of Visitor Services. Entries about past exhibitions, as early as 1972, have been retroactively added to the directory, but some exhibitions may be missing. In the crawled version of the directory, exhibitions are arranged chronologically by opening date. The last two pages contain exhibitions without firm opening dates. Due to the technical limitations of the crawler, the search and sorting features do not operate properly, though they may initially appear to work. Materials are in electronic format.
