Showcase your research with Deakin Exhibit

Deakin Library has just launched the online exhibition platform Deakin Exhibit. Deakin Exhibit allows researchers to create their own website to showcase research data and findings and enhance user engagement with their work. The platform supports a range of media including images, videos, audio records, as well as text-based documents.

Why showcase your research?

Exhibiting your research is a new way to communicate the work you do to the world. Exhibitions created on Deakin Exhibit are open access, viewable by anybody and discoverable through Google and other sites such as Trove. This can lead to greater dissemination and increase the audience and impact of your work.

Deakin Exhibit has only just launched, but we already have two exhibitions up and running.

Keep an eye on Exhibit Your Research for new Deakin Exhibits as they are published.
