Smithsonian Is Expected to Respond to Inquiry





The board overseeing the Smithsonian Institution is expected in the next few days to release its response to a Congressional inquiry into its agreement with Showtime Networks to create an on-demand cable station whose programming would feature Smithsonian programs and collections, said Lawrence M. Small, the institution's top executive. Mr. Small declined to characterize the response the institution's 17-member board agreed on, but he repeated assertions that the agreement "doesn't limit the access of anybody" to the Smithsonian's collections or curators.
