The physical exhibition was on view in the Tracy W. McGregor Room of Alderman Library from September through December 1996. The exhibition was co-curated by Michael Plunkett, Director of Special Collections, and Lucie Wall Stylianopoulos, Coordinator, Access Services, Science and Engineering Library.

The digital version of Muse and Confidante was designed and constructed by Edward Gaynor, Associate Director of Special Collections with the assistance of Felicia Johnson, Assistant Coordinator, Special Collections Digital Center.

Materials from the physical exhibit were digitized by staff in the Special Collections Digital Center using the center's HPScanJet flatbed scanners and the Kontron ProgRes model 3012 digital camera. Images were enhanced for web display using Debabelizer 1.65 and Adobe Photoshop 3.0.5. The electronic texts were prepared by Catherine Tousignant, Assisant Coordinator of the Electronic Text Center.

The current website was built in Omeka by the Online Library Environment team in 2013.
