Since its initial release in 2008, Omeka has become a widely used tool for web publishing in libraries and cultural heritage organizations. In the intervening years, the product suite has grown from the single-site “Classic” version of Omeka, to include a hosted solution, Omeka.net, and now a new version, Omeka S, that is designed to meet the needs of medium to larger libraries and cultural heritage organization. This presentation will provide an overview of some of the most innovative and successful implementations of Omeka by cultural heritage institutions through the years and it will point to possible innovative work to come.
