As of January 7, 2008, Smithsonian Photographic Services became part of Smithsonian Institution Archives, reporting to Archives director Anne Van Camp.  In FY 2005, after a workforce analysis, photographic services were decentralized to Smithsonian units.  The Director's Office and Photographic Archives were placed under the Office of Public Affairs.  Given the importance of the Photographic Archives and its role as a major Smithsonian historical collections, Photographic Services was moved to the Smithsonian Institution Archives.  Efforts will focus on preservation and enhanced access to the collection.
