  1. https://www.ushmm.org/information/exhibitions/online-exhibitions lots of different styles, the "some were neighbors" exhibit has some interesting features like "reflect"

    https://www.nypl.org/about/locations/schomburg/digital-schomburg/online-exhibitions They have listings of exhibits that look to have been made as stand alone projects then brought together in a listing on the site. We can look at a few and see what works/what doesn't.

  2. http://digitalcollections.barnard.edu/exhibits/student-publishing-barnard – They provide one summary for a batch of images, which you can click through easily. Seems to make it easier for storytelling.

    https://dp.la/exhibitions/exhibits/show/shoe-industry-massachusetts & https://dp.la/exhibitions/exhibits/show/evolution-personal-camera – These exhibits have distinct story arcs which makes it easy to follow the exhibit progression. Having mini "themes" creates an opportunity to write mini "essays," then batch a few images together to support that story.

    https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/beta/exhibit/AQ-09813 - Really nice having the juxtaposition of images. Breaks up ideas by having a bigger caption block to transition to the next part of the story.

    What I like about each of these exhibits is how easy it is for the viewer to pick up the arc of the exhibit's story. I think these formats would also make it easier for the curator to think of a beginning, middle, and end to the story they are trying to tell, or the argument they are trying to form.

  3. So I have to admit that some of my favorite digital exhibits are one-offs that stand alone as their own site (like this one or even this, which I'm not sure is even technically an exhibit) but we want the opposite, right? A consistent set of templates in the same branding, where the strength is the connection back to the aggregated digital library behind it.

    For that kind of model, I like DPLA best: https://dp.la/exhibitions

    I just spent quite a bit of time searching for other good examples of this kind of model and well... nothing really turned up.


    Looking forward to chatting with you all!
