¶ What is a Digital Exhibit?

Digital exhibits are a form of online exhibit that, like physical exhibits, use objects to tell stories, make arguments, and demonstrate ideas. Attributes include:

  • Objects can be digitized or “born digital” media of various types (e.g., digitized photographs, rare books, and films or born digital government documents)

  • Special attention is given to the organization of both the objects and the site in which the exhibit lives.

  • They might include a digital collection(s) component and interactive elements such as maps and timelines.
