The Library of Congress and History recently announced a multimedia partnership to showcase the Library’s collections to the audience of the History brands including History, history.com and other television properties. Unlike the controversial contract in 2006 between Showtime Networks and the Smithsonian, this is a non-exclusive partnership.
The deal will include co-branded content on history.com, as well as original specials and historical documentary programming on History™. The partnership will also bring historical content to more than 200,000 teachers across the country that use the channel’s branded educational materials in their classrooms.
History™ is a member of the National Coalition for History.
