ExhibitFiles feeds now appear on ASTC site

Sunday, August 26th, 2007 by Wendy Pollock

Recent redesign of the ASTC website means more exposure for ExhibitFiles content. Feeds are now drawn directly into a tabbed area of the ASTC main page, highlighting the three newest ExhibitFiles case studies and reviews.

Together with a variety of other strategies, these feeds are helping to increase visibility of ExhibitFiles members’ contributions.

Latest is Judy White’s extensive case study about the development of the Smithsonian Institution’s first discovery room more than 30 years ago. There are now 39 case studies, 25 reviews, and more than 350 members.

Join up and share your experiences and perspectives with the growing community. And please let us know your ideas for site improvements. We’ll be making another round of changes soon.

Those of you who use the Mac OS might be interested in a Apple Dashboard Widget that displays the latest updates from the ExhibitFiles right on your Mac Desktop.
Download the widget (Mac OS X users only):
exhibitfiles.wdgt.zip

In future versions, we’d like to add recent comments. We’re also interested in possibly exploring other widget types such as Google Gadgets, Yahoo! Widgets, and others. This is version 1.0, so your feedback is appreciated.
