Jennie (see comments) asked about the software used to magnify the scrapbook pages, so I went to the source for the answer.
Michael DiMauro webdesigner in our Office of Communications.
“It is flash actionscript code that was developed specifically for this project. It is actually pretty simple, I won’t get into the details, but it involves loading one small and one large picture, and then only showing the part of the large picture you are mousing over.
“I am planning on added to the scrapbook when time allows. Eventually you will be able to open up the little booklets, etc. Also, I’m adding an index so that you will be able to navigate through a lot easier.”
Thanks, Michael. Great job!

The William Smith Centennial webpage is up and running. I had mentioned the student scrapbook before and it looks great. Take a look at http://www.hws.edu/centennial/scrapbook.asp
We had talked about having it look like folded things open when you clicked on them. That didn’t happen, but there is a great “Magnify” option in the upper right corner of the picture so you can read everything.
The whole website is very well done. They even have a link to my Archives webpage in the menu under “History.”
