Introduction to Omeka S, Institutional Repositories, and DPLA

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The next generation of Omeka, Omeka S, has an explicit goal of increasing data exchange between Omeka S and other repositories holding cultural heritage data, especially institutional repository software like Fedora and DSpace. Integrating with DPLA -- especially facilitating the transfer of data in an Omeka S installation to DPLA -- is therefore a priority for the project. To further facilitate that transfer, Omeka S’s basic resource description template to be compliant with DPLA MAP 4.0.

This workshop will introduce Omeka S, currently in alpha releases, to participants. First we will give a general overview of Omeka S with emphasis on how it intends to connect with institutional repositories. We will then move to how to use its features to prepare data in Omeka S for contributing up through the hubs to DPLA.

Talk to me about Omeka, especially code and development. LODLAM, Drupal, and tasty beers are also good convos. I'm a developer and research assistant professor at Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.
