Help page



The text of the exhibits is in both pdf format and as web pages. Some people had difficulty reading such a large pdf file; those might try the suggestions in the help section if they want to stick with the pdf files. Otherwise, read the exhibits in the web format as listed here.

This index lists all the exhibits. The items that are bulleted are not found in the pdf file, they were graphics that went with the exhibit and made the pdf file too large. Thus, they can be accessed only as web pages. It is sometimes handy to open a second browser, so the graphics can be read side by side with the text of the exhibit.
