Looking to explore Omeka? Miriam Posner, coordinator of the UCLA Digital Humanities program, recently published a pair of posts, drawing on her experience teaching an introductory Omeka Workshop at THATCamp Feminisms West. In the first post, Posner sets up an account, adds items, and forms collections; in the second, she creates a digital exhibit.
Omeka is a web publishing platform specifically designed for use in libraries, museums, and archives. Developed at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, Omeka is free and open source. It requires minimal technical skills to get started, which makes Omeka a great tool to use to get started with DH at your institution. See how other institutions are using Omeka.
