What is a Digital Exhibit?

A digital exhibit is an electronic version of a physical exhibit which can be viewed without additional commentary to convey the meaning and purpose of the content.

What is a Digital Presentation?

A digital presentation may be an electronic slide show which requires additional commentary to convey the meaning and purpose of the content, an audio presentation without images or an informational/story video which includes audio and images in the form of a movie.

What is a Digital Philatelic Study (DPS)?

Digital Philatelic Studies are the most recent form of electronic philatelic efforts. They range widely across subject areas and contain information in a compact format.

“A DPS is an electronic file or set of files that tells a philatelic story such as: the change from traditional to pictorial designs in British Caribbean Colonies; the Pony Express; or mail from the Crimean war. It combines the elements of journal articles, exhibits and PowerPoint presentations into a final electronic presentation form (i.e. PowerPoint file, PDF file, etc.).”
