Landing Pages, Links, Guides, & Basics
For Road Show micro exhibitions, landing pages with links to a micro exhibition and links to related resources will be published using the “micro exhibition” content type on Road Show at Beinecke Library. For example, see Piazza San Marco: Writers and Tourists landing page with links to sway presentation and relevant Beinecke collections. All Road Show micro exhibitions–not matter the format–will have a landing page on Road Show at Beiencke: Micro Exhibitions.

Drupal Blog Posts & Resource Pages
This site (like all Yale Sites) uses Druple, a free, open-source web contet framework; a drupal “basic page” can function as a blog post or research guide micro exhibiton. A blog post might be especially effective for linear structures (narratives, timelines) and for instances where a single text introduces a group of similar materials that do not each need substantive explication. A research guide format gathers, organizes, and highlights relationships between and among objects and related collections and resources.

Sway is a web publishing app that dynamically combines images and text; the format works well with a balanced arrangement of images and text; images galleries can also be created in sway.

An episodic series of events, related biographical sketches of members of a community, clusters of objects that share a common format or theme may be best exhibited as a series of Instagram posts or tweets.

Micro exhibions might be made in other formats, using other tools and social media platforms. Members of the Road Show Public Humanities workshop are welcome to experiment with formats (including video and audio recordings and platforms such as YouTube, TicTok, and SnapChat) and to propose alternatives.
