**Description: **The Sixth Floor Museum website is not only a source of information about the museum and current events, but also an online collections database. The site was built with a set of online exhibits and collections items, such as the Zapruder Film, with plans to continually add digitized collections items.

The webiste is managed with the FarCry content management system. Extensions to FarCry allow for the management of collections items housed in a Fedora Commons repository.

I led in architecting the website in FarCry and extending the FarCry core as needed. I developed the Filter Selector user interface used in several sections of the site, such as the Online Collections and the Memory Book search pages.
