Description

Get your research collection online with Omeka

workshop by Therese Nolan-Brown, Visual Arts Librarian, QCA Library


Create digital exhibitions, scholarly collections and archives using Omeka: a free open-source, easy to use publishing platform. Developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, Omeka is being used by artists, researchers, and curators at Australian universities (including Monash, Deakin, Melbourne, UWS) to preserve and display art and cultural collections. Omeka allows users to create narratives around exhibitions through a simple, flexible, template system, designed with non-IT specialists in mind. This means that creating an online exhibition with Omeka is as easy as launching a blog. More information.

Scholars are also using Omeka to present works for conference presentations, talks, research evaluation, teaching and grant applications. Omeka research applications and museum contexts.
