A lively discussion of this report took place on November 2, 2012 at UMass Boston. The speakers and most of the audience members were National Park Service employees. The entire session was videotaped and is available online: http://www.thehistorylist.com/blog_posts/73-History-and-Interpretation-in-the-National-Park-Service -- --

"This report urges NPS to recommit to history as one of its core purposes and invest in building a top-flight program of historical research and interpretation that will foster consistently effective and integrated historic preservation and robust, place-based visitor engagement with history. The more central history can be to NPS’s missions and activities, the more relevant and responsive NPS can be to the needs of American society in the twenty-first century."

Produced by the Organization of American Historians under a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service.
