Europeana and Online Exhibits

In April, Europeana announced that they would be releasing a number of additional online exhibits this year. They’ve already released quite a few including:

These are wonderful online exhibits on their own. It’s also wonderful to see Europeana’s dedication to supporting online exhibits because online exhibits allow people to see, use, and understand materials in new ways that enhance the experience with the online exhibit and the collections it draws upon. The process of creation online exhibits itself is also requires scholarly and creative work for the curation and design. The UF Digital Collections and Digital Library of the Caribbean have released and constantly at work on new online exhibits in collaboration with researchers, and we’re always amazed at how positive the response is to the online exhibits.
