This accession consists of event listings from across the Smithsonian Institution as they were published online. The entries have been exported in XML format from the same database which generates the online calendar of events. Due to limitations in the number of entries that may be exported, two types of XML files have been generated. The first type includes quarterly captures of one-time events only. The second includes all events - both one-time and recurring - up to 1,000 events, captured approximately once per month. Not every instance of a recurring event may be documented in the files. Sometime between July and August 2014, a change in system settings resulted in only future events (rather than past events) being captured in the "all events" exports, therefore events during the summer of 2014 are not well documented. The Office of Visitor Services is responsible for coordinating the submission of event entries to the database. Materials are in electronic format.
