The Electronic Exhibit


This electronic exhibit is being unveiled on October 6, 1995, to coincide with the opening of the physical exhibit and the launching of the University's Capital Campaign.

It is intended to bring some of the riches of the Special Collections Department of the University Library to the attention of the world and to demonstrate the Library's expertise in making materials in diverse formats available electronically via the World Wide Web.

The electronic exhibit allows us to extend the limits of the physical exhibit. For instance, while in the physical exhibit we can show but one page of a letter, electronically we can show all the pages as images as well as a searchable full text. While the physical exhibit is mounted only for a brief period, the electronic exhibit will be continuously available to both local users and visitors from the entire world.

The electronic exhibit was designed to be viewed with the Netscape 1.1 browser. Images have been sized for optimum display on a 17-inch monitor, using the internal Netscape image-viewer. For the best display of the text, set font preferences to either New Century Schoolbook (PC and Macintosh) or New York (Macintosh).

We will continue to add materials to the electronic exhibit. Please consult the what's new page.
