A new section has been added to TopScholar: Kentucky Museum / Library Special Collections Online Exhibits. The site features images of objects, photographs and documents used in exhibits with more background information than is inclued in a typical museum label. The site includes a blog widgets for user comments which will enhance our knowledge of objects and photographs. The Google maps / Google Earth widget allows us place objects and photographs in geographical relation to others.
Currently there are two completed online exhibits. The first is Get on the Bus: 40 Years of Political Activism. Originally created in 2008 as a traveling exhibit to commemorate the Civil Rights movement, this online exhibit focuses on WKU students’ involvement in political causes through the years.
The second is Playing Our Song: Southern Kentucky Notes which highlights the Kentucky Library’s Southern Kentucky Music Collection as well as WKU faculty, staff, student and alumni musicians.
