slide3

What is Omeka?“Omekais a free, flexible, and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions.”

slide4

What else is Omeka?

“Omeka is a Swahili word meaning to display or lay out wares; to speak out; to spread out; to unpack.”– Omeka web site (!)

slide5

Why do we use Omeka?We implemented Omeka in in 2009 to allow CUL curators to create and publish online exhibitions of material digitized from our specialized collections with a minimum of support from central technology staff.

slide6

One key implementation decision was that a modest number of display templates, colors and designs would be made available for curators to select from. No specialized design work or programming would be needed.

slide7

Another key implementation decision was that digitized content and metadata created for online exhibitions would be done to an appropriate standard that would allow it to be incorporated into our overall digital library collection.

slide10

Great! But … Omeka is a growing metadata silo. We need to ‘unsilo’ by moving Omeka metadata and derivatives into Fedora so the content is available more broadly.

slide12

To improve workflows and reduce content duplication, in Phase 3 we will implement the “Fedora / Omeka connector.”

slide14
