What is a Virtual Exhibit?

A Virtual Exhibit is a Stacks feature that will display your special collections in a visual and browsable card-style layout. A virtual exhibit can have its own branding, distinct from your Stacks site.  Your virtual exhibit can also be searchable in your overall discovery strategy by including it in your Bento Search.
