This dissertation covers the design and development of the Virtual Archival Exhibition System (VAES) that supports the authoring of web-based virtual exhibitions. The virtual exhibitions can be tailored to serve the needs of various user groups through the application of style sheets and amalgamation of different reusable archival information objects that are endowed with rich metadata. By using different information layers, reusing the layout setting, and applying different style sheets, it is easy for authors or archivists, especially for those who are less proficient in IT, to create multiple versions of the same exhibition that vary in content, layout and presentation to meet the diverse information needs of a range of different user communities.
