This accession consists of nine public websites within the domain of the National Museum of Natural History. Websites were maintained by the Office of Education, Natural Partners, and the Office of Special Events. Many of these websites existed on the NMNH public web server until June 2005, but there were no direct links to the pages.
"National Earth Science Week" presents special offerings, exhibitions, and schedules for the Earth Science Week activities at NMNH for October 10-13, 2000. Consisting of a single webpage, it delivers a description of the different offerings and provides contact information.
