Creating Digital Exhibits with Omeka

Omeka is a platform for creating digital exhibits. Using this tool, you can organize related items into collections or narrative exhibits in order to display them in context. Omeka enables one or more users to edit the site with varying levels of access, and it has a number of plugins that enhance site functionality. A digital exhibit created by Dr. Jess FitzPatrick’s Fall 2019 Science Fiction class can be found at https://sff19.omeka.net, offering one example of what an Omeka site can look like. This workshop will introduce the purpose and features of Omeka, offer examples of different uses of the platform, and include a hands-on portion where participants can investigate Omeka through guided instruction and individual experimentation.

Friday, January 31 at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
