Pro! keeps exhibits in a special catalog. A user can view the list of exhibits in the catalog and search for a particular exhibit. The catalog is part of the Pro! database – that is, Pro! keeps the exhibit in the same database as the items. So a routine backup of items also backs up the exhibits.
The exhibit catalog is more than just a place to keep exhibits; it centralizes their management because the catalog contains all exhibits whether they are used in an item or not. It also keeps data items about each exhibit. The data items are too numerous to mention here, but some of the most important is the copyright year, whether permission to use the exhibit has expired, the original size, the desired display size, source reference, and classification. The catalog also keeps a list of items that include each exhibit. This list is viewable from the catalog entry.
