NASA Johnson Space Center History Office supports the Center
and the Agency through a number of efforts.
Through its Oral
History Project, the History Office collects first-hand
experiences eliciting details of procedures, processes, methodologies,
rationale, and background of operations, design, and development.
Since 1997, more than 1195 oral histories have been conducted
by the History Office and the finalized transcripts are available
on the fully searchable History Portal.
This website is updated with new oral history transcripts at
least four times a year.
JSC History Portal, the History Office provides easy access
to searchable electronic files and resources such as the Centerís
collection of Space Roundups (1961-present),
Press Kits (Apollo
through Shuttle), NASA Mission Transcripts (Mercury
through Apollo Air to Ground transcripts), JSC
News Releases from 1961 to present, and more than 300 space
related websites and resources, such as links to NASA imagery
and publications. The Portal also provides access to the JSC History Collection History and
research expertise and encompassing historical knowledge, the
History Office provides real-time support and assistance to
those at the Center and within the Agency in locating materials
to aid in fulfilling requirements or providing accurate data
necessary for reports, analysis, and resolutions to current
and future issues. The History Office utilizes the JSC History Collection and Archives
as well as numerous additional sources to provide quick and
thorough answers to questions. Also, the History Office promotes
the acquisition of personal files and historical possessions
from former JSC employees and works closely with the JSC History Collection archivist
to assist in securing these materials for preservation and future
data from obsolete media to accessible sources before the data
deteriorates, the History Office preserves resource information
unique to the Center and the Agency. Saving these recordings
is essential, because very few of the tape rescue interviews
have been transcribed.
