Taking the web archive off the virtual shelf - archived websites in a library exhibition

In my post for Day of Digital Archives last year I wrote about our efforts at the State Library of Queensland to archive websites related to our state's 2010/11 summer of natural disasters. 

This year, State Library launched Floodlines: a living memory – a library exhibition paying tribute to the resilience and community spirit of Queenslanders in the face of these disastrous weather events.  It was in this unique, digitally-immersive exhibition that our archived websites were featured.
