We hope this exhibit will be the starting point for further exploration, whether that be in jazz history or the process of digital exhibit design. Below you will find additional readings and sources. The exhibit design bibliography will be of use to anyone wishing to learn about creating a digital exhibit using the Omeka platform or bringing museological approaches to the digital environment. Some were also used in the associated course, ANTH 570: Digital Heritage, taught by Dr. Cory Willmott in Spring 2019. For further recommendations beyond those listed, please see the “Contributors” page for contact information.
