Workshop: Digital Collections and Exhibits with Omeka

Omeka.net is a web-publishing platform that allows anyone with an account to create or collaborate on a website to display collections and build digital exhibitions (“About,” Omeka.net).

In this workshop for THATCampers with no previous experience with Omeka, we will:

  • talk about use cases for Omeka
  • look at some Omeka projects
  • describe the difference between omeka.net site and running your own instance of Omeka
  • talk about plug-ins
  • add items to an archive
  • assign metadata

If there is interest, following this workshop will be a session dedicated to running your own instance of Omeka through Amazon Web Services (which is free for a year). If you are interested in this, please see my session proposal which has information about what you will need to participate.

If you are interested in creating an Omeka.net site, please sign up for and activate a Basic (free) Omeka.net account before you arrive. You might also bring a laptop with some practice files to upload to your new Omeka.net site!
