28 Jul 2022 10:00am-12:00pm ONLINE (Zoom)


In this workshop, you will learn about the various features of the exhibit.so platform, led by Ed Silverton, from Mnemoscene and introduced by Andy Corrigan from Cambridge Digital Library.

Cambridge Digital Humanities (CDH) is working with Mnemoscene to develop a local instance of the Exhibit tool that will be available to University of Cambridge users.

Exhibit is a tool for visual storytelling developed by Mnemoscene supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund. It is an easy-to-use tool for creating captivating interactive stories and quizzes with Cultural Heritage content, also now publicly available at https://www.exhibit.so/. Built using the Universal Viewer it enables users to load images or 3D objects from any IIIF-supporting online catalogue to tell stories within and across collections.

No prior knowledge of IIIF or Exhibit required!


At the end of the workshop attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the key features of Exhibit
  • Identify how to source existing IIIF manifests or add new ones to Exhibit
  • Create stories, quizzes, and kiosks in Exhibit
  • Embed your Exhibit on your website

The workshop is open to staff and graduate students who want to learn and apply digital methods and use digital tools in their research.
