About Archives Center, Smithsonian Institution
The Archives Center was created in the early 1980s to serve as a repository for archival collections from throughout the National Museum of American History and to acquire additional collections in support of the museum's research, exhibition, and collecting programs. The collections complement the Museum's artifact holdings and are used for scholarly research, exhibitions, publications, documentary productions, school programs, and other research and educational activities. The Archives Center currently has more than 1,500 collections stored in the American History building and at off-site storage locations. In addition to paper-based textual records, many of the collections contain photographs, motion picture films, videotapes, and sound recordings. Increasingly, the collections include born digital documents in a wide variety of formats. The collections are particularly rich in the areas of technology, consumer culture including advertising and marketing, invention and innovation, popular music, African American history and culture, and many other topics that document the American experience. With few exceptions, Archives Center collections are acquired by donation, ...often in conjunction with the acquisition of related artifacts and in collaboration with the Museum's curatorial staff. Documentation projects -- including oral and video histories -- actively create new research collections. The Museum's ability to acquire and care for artifacts and archival materials in all physical formats and to generate contemporary documentation gives it a unique capacity to record the complexity and richness of the American experience.
