Each web page on this site contains this central area for text, a lower area for images and notes, a top area for titles, and an optional sidebar on the right for extra links.

Top Title Area

  • Exhibit Title. Exhibits consist of a relatively small number of closely-related pages. For example, one exhibit might be devoted to a chapter of a book, or to a specific period of a figure's life. The title of an Exhibit always appears just above the central text area. Click on the Exhibit title (or on the Page link) to see a clickable list of all pages in the Exhibit. This exhibit consists of the Exhibits Online Home page and this Orientation page.
  • Group Title. Groups consist of related exhibits. For example, a Group might be devoted to a particular book, with one exhibit per chapter. Or a group might be devoted to the life of a particular figure, with one exhibit devoted to each phase of the figure's life. Exhibits do not have to be assigned to groups, and the same exhibit can belong to more than one group. If the current exhibit belongs to a group, the Group title appears immediately above the Exhibit title. Click on the Group title to see a clickable list of all exhibits in the Group.
  • Icons. Feeling lucky? Click any icon along the top to go immediately to a page of an exhibit that contains the original image. Icons load randomly on each page.

Central Text Area

The Central text area contains the main content of the page, including text, in-line images, and Figure references to images collected at the bottom of the page. Images and footnotes are numbered automatically on each page. For example, to automatically scroll down to the lower part of the page where an image appears, click on this figure link: (Figure 1) . After viewing the image, click on the Return to Text link to come back to this place in the text. Footnotes, when present, work in the same way.(1)

Lower Image and Notes Area

  • At the bottom of the page, images appear in grey boxes containing a fast-loading thumbnail, a Return to Text link, a caption, and zoom buttons.
  • Click the zoom links to view a five-inch jpg (loads quickly) or a ten-inch jpg (suitable for PowerPoint or close inspection). (If you use Internet Explorer, you may want to turn off the sadly misnamed "Smart Image Resizing" in your preferences, otherwise the images will shrink to fit your browser window and you will not be able to insepct them in detail.)
  • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) the TIFF link to download a 10-20 MB tiff image suitable for photographic-quality printing. If you click this link by mistake, you may wait a long time for it to load in your browser!
  • Click the Images Terms of Use link at the bottom of any page for copyright permission, a sample attribution statement, and instructions for browsing available images. Unless otherwise noted, all images on this website are copyright History of Science Collections, University of Oklahoma Libraries. Please report use of any images by contacting the History of Science Collections as instructed in this Terms of Use link.
  • Note: Some older versions of Internet Explorer do not load the image thumbnails. Pressing F11 may help (for incomprehensible reasons), but if not, use the 5-inch zoom link to view the image.
