Jess Waggoner (University of California, Santa Cruz) has written a post providing an overview of the Omeka Curator Dashboard, “a suite of fifteen plugins (though a bonus sixteenth will be coming soon!) designed to facilitate object import and export, manage metadata, and curate collections.”
Waggoner explains how working on the Grateful Dead Archive Online project helped she and her colleagues identify a need for “curatorial workflow tools, metadata and file management tools” within Omeka. The post also outlines what each plugin can offer to users and resources for getting started with them.
