ABSTRACT

This chapter will cover five extended examples as case studies to demonstrate how the principles covered in earlier chapters can help to drive and shape your creativity to form a finished product. The five exhibits were designed and created by the author for a library and differ in terms of origin and eventual form. These exhibits can provide lessons for anyone who is interested in undertaking a comparable project because the issues discussed are centered much more on process over product. The key lessons that will be identified and described in these case studies center on methods that were developed and deployed by the author to analyze content, identify related objects, form unifying and supporting digital structures, and create original explanatory text. Each of these projects presented unique challenges that will be described and analyzed so that other exhibit creators can have examples of methods and strategies to deploy as they go about engaging in their content, whatever it may be.
