PO.EX entry: 
Pull Quotes: 

Two primary features of PO.EX make it a truly stellar example of a digital archive: (1) an effective, functional taxonomy that enables users to search for works logically; and (2) thorough preservation and representation of the works that are being catalogued within the archive. These crucial aspects of the PO.EX archive are a model of how a digital archive can reach peak effect. PO.EX, communal and focused, presents a scientific and proficient organizational scheme; its contents are not difficult to negotiate and may be used reliably.
