The Virtual exhibition allows users to experience exhibitions, by the University of Sydney library's Rare Books and Special Collections department (RBSC), even if they are unable to visit the physical space or after the exhibition is no longer on display.

The brief was to create a digital experience that would both promote rare book exhibitions as well as enable guests to enjoy the exhibition digitally. This means that guests can enjoy the exhibition even if they're unable to visit the physical space or the exhibition is no longer on display.

Users are able to virtually explore the exhibition space and select displayed items to learn more. Presenting the exhibition digitally, in this way preserves the exhibition experience as designed by the curator.
