  • Finish Exhibits Archive (i.e. at least 2012-2014 : use maps, and ideally all the way to 2008)

  • Design Online Exhibits: just like the main pages, 1-2 sentences of text + picture + date + link; each online exhibit has a specialty page

  • Change Featured Exhibits: could be Space, Highway 50, and/or Pioneers

  • Continue Things to Do: make a PDF of fun things to do (by area)

  • Continue Things to Do: make PDFs of similar-grouped things: train rides in the area, etc.

  • Continue Things to Do: include links to interviews I conducted with the museums over Winter Break 2016

  • Other website-related ideas from 5-year plan (look at every year, not just 2018!)

  • COLLECTIONS: entire site/program? link to it from website

  • Area/section that highlights different transit agencies


  1. Copy page, link old month's exhibit from the Exhibit Archives + make it blue

  2. Copy page, design new month's Spotlight Exhibit

  3. When it's time to get rid of the old exhibit and publish it, copy all the work (not the page) on the 2nd copied page (where the new month is) directly to the Spotlight Exhibit page

  4. Delete 2nd copied page

  5. Change descriptions (not links!): from the Exhibits page, under Exhibit Archive; from the Home Page (change color as well, on Celebrating 10 Years also); 

  6. Update Page SEO for spotlight; as well as picture on Home page
