Introduction to Omeka: Creating online exhibits and collections

This workshop will introduce students to Omeka, a content management system that enables users to easily create online exhibits and collections. Omeka is open source software developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media to support the creation of collections and exhibits in smaller cultural and academic institutions, but has since been adopted by a broad user-base, including UofT.

Through workshop activities, we will introduce students to the Omeka platform and discuss how to evaluate platforms and develop user services. By the end of the workshop, students will be able to create items, collections, and exhibits using the web-hosted omeka.net.

Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop. Please note, it is your responsibility to sign next to your name on the attendance sheet for each workshop session. A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.
