I'm going to be working with some paleobotanist friends to create an exhibit. It's going to be a mix of panels with images and some text, and also some 3-d elements as well as small shelves or brackets with actual fossils. I'm going to be contributing images but also helping to design and build the exhibit. I haven't done this before and I'm wondering if any of you can recommend a good basic text on science exhibit design. We're not going to make it interactive (other than possibly using some QR codes) as it's going into an existing floor-to-ceiling glass case along a wall. 

Any and all tips will be much appreciated!
