Online Exhibits in Plone

Museums, libraries, art institutes, and many other types of organizations need online exhibits - websites that mimic the experience of walking through a gallery discovering interesting and beautiful objects. Sally describes the open source package that we have created for Dumbarton Oaks, and our incremental approach to defining and implementing it.

Commercial museum collections management systems often provide online exhibits, and open source exhibit software has proliferated in recent years. Some of these systems are approaching CMS functionality. But what if you are starting with Plone, which is already a full-featured CMS? Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection is engaged in a major website redesign in Plone and online exhibits will be an important part of their new website. They envisioned many features, and they also envisioned online exhibits to be easy for content editors - even interns - to assemble.
