Asian American Women Index

The site will look very professional and clean. The site will start with a flash introduction that will take the user to the website home. There the user will have many links to the collection itself. Each page will include a side bar that looks the same on every page (so that the user can scroll through the pages with ease). The wesbite will include: An exhibit, the collection, an "About" page, a Search page, (Teacher) Resources, and a Forum/Feedback section.
