Digital Exhibits at the University of Michigan

The University of Michigan Library builds compelling digital exhibits using resources from our extensive collections in our Online Exhibits. You will find inspiring, curated collections of art, literature, culture, history, and more!

Online Exhibits are collections of digital objects – images, audio files, video files – that have been selected and organized around a clear, single focus. Like a case or panel in a physical exhibit, the displays in our Online Exhibits contain one or several objects that have been selected, organized, described, and explained by the curator/creator.

An Online Exhibit may or may not have a physical counterpart, but are often created to provide ongoing representations of physical exhibits that happen in the library.

University of Michigan Library Online Exhibits are proudly brought to you by Omeka.
