The Blacklight interface in the Hydra/Fedora repository allows patrons to view books and manuscripts by using a page-turner. The viewing options include a one-page, two-page, or light box display and allow for the page to be turned in different directions. For example, for materials which are typically read from right to left, such as in Arabic or Persian, the patron can choose to turn the pages in that direction. To try it, click on the image to start the page-turner.
