This critical review analyses two new offerings from BiblioLabs: BiblioBoard and Creator <http://www.biblioboard.com/>. BiblioBoard is a database of mostly historical sources, all of which are in the public domain. Subscribing institutions have access to the entire database, while individuals can purchase and view select collections on their iPads with the BiblioBoard app. Creator is a tool for developing and marketing digital exhibits that are then uploaded into Creator and either made available through the institutional subscription or, if libraries wish, for sale through the BiblioBoard app. The review finds that academic libraries do not have much to gain through a subscription to BiblioBoard itself but that Creator presents new opportunities for creating and marketing unique online collections or adding to the digital humanities curriculum. Creator is briefly compared to Omeka, an open source tool for online digital exhibits.
