    Hi all,

    I started a new job at the beginning of the year working at a university library as a web assistant. One of the first projects I was given was creating this online exhibition. It went live a few weeks ago and I am reasonably happy with it.

    If I started it again now I would have done things a little differently as I now have a little more knowledge but I was required to work on it here and there when I had spare time between other projects.

    The result is that a lot of the initial code I wrote when I first started isn't exactly best practice (aligning div's and p's in the HTML) but as I was only allowed to spend limited tiome on it, I didn't have the time to go back and change everything.

    Please let me know what you think, any criticism is welcome.

    just a few comments
    firstly, splash pages arent really good practice, however, i think in this case, u did it well. considering this is more of an educational site, i guess its ok.

    secondly , the menu up top, i didnt even notice it the first time i took a look. Banner blindness i guess, but usually users skip the first lil bit of the top of the page due to usual banner placement.

    thirdly, ur lightbox is nice but where there are more than 1 picture (ex Program to william mckinley funeral service) these should be lightbox galleries, not single images. that way if i want to view the entire program i can click next, next, next. instead of click, close, click, close, click, close, click, close

    The way to do this is rel="lightbox[mckinley]"
    I believe that works, so on all those images add the [mckinley] and they will be part of the same collection.

    Other than that, looks good.
