This book provides a history of the Smithsonian Videohistory Program, including its establishment as a formal pan-Smithsonian research program and its relationship with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. It also surveys written literature and similar projects, addresses videohistory as a methodology by exploring the application of videohistory in historical research (based on 22 Smithsonian projects), and provides an overview of technical and archival issues. In addition, the appendixes provide a summary of all Smithsonian videohistory projects, as well as samples of documents needed for undertaking a videohistory project.
