Friends:

The New York Academy of Medicine has opened a new online and physical exhibit focusing on the creation of the  Fasciculus Medicinae, an influential medical work published in Italy in 1491.

The exhibit includes full-text digital reproductions of different editions of the book accompanied by essays concerning its production.  The  exhibit's homepage includes a discussion of the goals of the exhibiti including ways that it breaks new ground in creating online exhibitions.  The curators used Islandora to display a newly digitized source in different ways.
