Event Details

Has your GLAM (gallery, library, archive, museum) wanted to create an online exhibition but didn't know how to get started? Have you been stuck trying to manage digital collections easily and inexpensively?

Omeka may be your answer.

A free-to-inexpensive open-source content management system, Omeka was designed with GLAMs in mind. Used by institutions from the Smithsonian Institution for their "Elvis at 21" exhibit to the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission's "Land of Penn and Plenty" exhibit, Omeka gives users flexibility in creating visually appealing digital exhibitions using your digital collections. To get you up and running as quickly as possible, this workshop will give you a thorough introduction to Omeka. We'll cover topics including:

  • What is Omeka and why should I use it?
  • Differences between Omeka.net and Omeka.org
  • How to create digital collections
  • Proper use of metadata
  • Turning digital collections into digital exhibitions
  • Plug-ins
