Description

This paper presents a method for creating virtual exhibitions using source materials from the National Archives of Singapore. The organizational structure includes an introduction to virtual exhibits, the architecture and design of both the virtual exhibit system and the digital archive, and concluding with a discussion of the assembled product. This innovate approach allows a flexible user interface along with the reference and reuse gathering model for efficient retrieve of artifacts. The flexibility allows the presentation of the exactly same information in a variety of formats. This approach caters to the general public and advanced researchers alike. The customized appearance is controlled via Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) which controls how the final product is rendered in HTML to the user.
