The New Kid on the Block.
Flood, R. Kevin
Because the National Archives did not have the capacity to manage the volume of films produced by government agencies in recent decades, in 1969 the National Audiovisual Center was created. Its function is to act as a distributor on behalf of federal agencies and to provide information on all federally produced audiovisual titles. The Center is composed of three branches: (1) information; (2) marketing; and (3) distribution. The collection is composed predominantly of 16mm film, and holdings are divided into 26 subject areas. Film contents are very specific in nature and are generally useful for curriculum enrichment. Future plans include the development of a comprehensive data file of federally produced audiovisual materials. (EMH)
