Dear list members,

I hope you might indugle a list newcomer's question...

We are currently planning for the transfer of the Women's Library to LSE [
http://www2.lse.ac.uk/library/news/Womens-Library.aspx] and part of that
involves the creation of a new exhibitions space.

I am thinking through the options for having a digital presence in that
space.

As part of the transfer we are planning a programme of digitisation that
will make (hopefully a significant amount of) material available online.
Although content selection is at the early stages we are already planning
IA/UX work to enhance our current Digital Library [
http://digital.library.lse.ac.uk/]

My question is whether there is any learning from the museum sector that
might give guidance on what approaches work or don't work when surfacing
digital collections in physical exhbitions spaces, in the form of audience
research, case studies, etc.

The options which have occured to us so far include:

1) a standalone digital kiosk giving depth access to whole/partial digital
collections via the existing Digital Library interface (including
search/browse functionality + object display)
2) several digital terminals interspersed with the physical cabinets,
limited to showing either single or a few items in a more constrained
interface (eg turning the pages, multimedia playback)
3) digital displays above/with each physical cabinet showing more items or
additional information related to the objects on display

Any suggestions for published material or pointers to who we should be
talking to would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance you are able to offer.
