Description

Omeka is a free Content Management System (CMS) and a web publishing system built by and for scholars that is used by hundreds of archives, libraries, museums, individual researchers, and teachers to create searchable online databases and scholarly online interpretations of their digital collections. If you have a set of digital primary sources that you want to publish online in a scholarly way, you’ll want to consider Omeka. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to understand some of the conceptual challenges faced when developing digital archives and create an online database of digital archival items.
