The German National Library (DNB) has set new standards in presentation of museum content with three online exhibitions: Arts in exile, 100 Years First World War and Characters - Books - Networks: From cuneiform to binary code. These full-service projects have proven that exhibits never shown publically, or those only displayed locally, can be combined with existing collections to create new forms of exhibition.
