The Historical Collections department at HBS' Baker Library staged public exhibits in its foyer on a regular basis. The exhibits were accompanied by an on-line companion to the exhibit. I oversaw the User Experience for these exhibits, and managed the in-house and contracted resources we used to produce them. I was also beginning to introduce standardization in the overall design so that the companion web sites felt related.
