Workshop: Introduction to Omeka

Omeka is a simple system used by scholarly archives, libraries, and museums all over the world to manage and describe digital images, audio files, videos, and texts; to put such digital objects online in a searchable database; and to create attractive web exhibits from them. In this introduction to Omeka, you’ll create your own digital archive of images, audio, video, and texts that meets scholarly metadata standards and creates a search engine-optimized website. We’ll go over the difference between the hosted version of Omeka and the open source server-side version of Omeka, look at examples of Omeka archives and exhibits, and discuss other possible uses.

This workshop is intended for campers that have no previous experience with Omeka.

    Hi, Megan and Fellow Campers!

    I am so very grateful for all that I learned on Saturday, and the Omeka workshop was one of the highlights of the day for me. As a newcomer to most of the DH tools, I really found Megan’s explanation and guide clear and wonderfully helpful to get me started with my site. I feel empowered to build on what I have learned and start sharing my work. Thank you, so much!

    Cheers, Karen G.
