Associate Director for Technology

In November, MIT began work on Exhibit 2.0, a new project funded by the Library of Congress and collaborating with Zepheira LLC to redevelop the popular Exhibit tool from the MIT Simile Project. Exhibit 2.0 will fix many shortcomings of Exhibit, making it far more scalable, modular, and feature rich than the original tool, and the work is being done as broadly inclusive open source software development. This briefing session will briefly demonstrate the current tool, discuss the new architecture and features, and get input from the audience on how to build interest and involvement from the community in this work.
