Ideas and Inspiration
Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.
Looking for inspiration? We have provided a few links to examples of exhibits from DPUL (our instance of the open-source Spotlight application), as well as examples from other institutions that use Spotlight.
