In conjunction with the exhibition Between the Beads: Reading African Beadwork, on view through Summer 2009, the Harn Museum of the University of Florida developed a complementary online exhibition that features rotating 360 degree views of thirty-two of the objects in the exhibition.
As the UF Library's Arts of Africa page explains,
In selecting items for the Between the Beads exhibit of African Beadwork in 2008, the Harn Museum partnered with the University of Florida Digital Library Center. The Digital Library Center provided imaging support by photographing each object in high resolution and creating a digital package which would simulate museum viewing by allowing each object to be seen in the round (360 degrees). Each object can also be enlarged to show detail giving scholars, researchers and the public an experience not available in the museum setting; the ability to inspect even the smallest stitch or tiniest bead. These images are now freely available online to anyone with an Internet connection within this collection.

Objects presented in the exhibition are drawn from the Harn Museum‘s collection and private collections. Interpretive text for the exhibition, available throughout the gallery,
was supplied in part by the students in Dr. Victoria Rovine’s Spring
2007 Clothing and Textiles in Africa class.
