The Virtual Library museum pages – Universiti Putra Malaysia (VLmp-UPM) is the tangible output of Universiti Putra Malaysia’s Gallery Serdang Programme initiated by the Faculty of Design and Architecture in response to establishing an alternative citation-indexed publication route for design-based research. VLmp-UPM database is part of a distributed directory of online museums (http://vlib.org/Humanities) and the resource is indexed under the Humanities and Humanitic Studies. Collections of artifacts by students and experts of Universiti Putra Malaysia are archived digitally under the guided curatorship of faculty members with the Sultan Abdul Samad Library and the IT Development Centre. At Universiti Putra Malaysia, the database is indexed under the Intellectual Repositorty (IR) Index. The publication of selected artifacts under thematic exhibitions is further upgraded from a peer-reviewed article to citation-indexed articles whenever an exhibition’s catalogue is listed in either the Arts and/or Humanities Indexes. The STEdex catalogue, for example, is a citation index journal having being listed in the Design and Applied Arts Index of Cambridge Scholarly Association and ProQuest. Additionally, each exhibited article is indexed in the Humanities and Humanities Studies when published by VLmp-UPM.
