Omeka is a free, open-source content management system, which is being used by libraries, archives, museums, and scholars to create and curate objects (i.e. text, photo, map), as well as present research in a flexible and interactive setting.
This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the platform and teach them how to create and describe items (i.e. photos, text, maps), organize items within collections, and publish content for the public. In addition, metadata standards (i.e. Dublin Core) will be discussed during the workshop as they relate to creating descriptions of items in Omeka. A list of resources and tips will be provided to participants.
This workshop will appeal to participants who are interested in presenting their research using a collection of texts, images or maps, or who are looking for a content management system for classroom use. If you have questions or for more information, contact Anna Kijas.
