The British Library has partnered with Google Arts & Culture to bring online their physical exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic.
Apart from various aspects of the story and the movie series, the exhibition covers for example illustrations, the history of real-world magic, and early sketches and notes by J.K. Rowling. In addition, on display are a number of items from the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic.
My favorite feature is perhaps the section covering the real-world history of various Hogwarts classes, closely followed by the animals and fantastical beasts section.

Of course; glad to do it! 🙂
I’m a librarian, and even though I know in my professional capacity how many digital projects the big libraries / museums have these days, it still takes me by surprise. It’s so awesome, both for research AND for fun.
