¶ Digital Exhibits

Like physical exhibits, digital exhibits require research, curation, the writing of captions and other contextual information, information organization, and design. Beyond displaying and contextualizing digitized or born-digital materials like historical documents, photographs, film footage, or audio clips, digital exhibits allow for such things as linking to outside resources and the incorporation of a variety of digital objects like maps and timelines. Digital exhibits often come from existing digital collections or begin with the creation of a digital collection, which requires digitization and metadata generation among other steps.
