Digital Collection Projects
This guide is designed to assist students with completing digital collection class projects.
What is a digital exhibit?
Omeka is a content management system for online digital collections. We are using Omeka to build digital exhibits for your class projects.
Omeka is structured out of three different types of "building blocks":
Items: The individual building blocks of a collection. Sortable by type of item and tags.
Collections: Groups of items. The public can dig through collection to find items.
Exhibits: Exhibits contain interpretative text and rely on items as their building blocks. They usually highlight aspects of a collection based on some common theme.
The remainder of this guide will walk you through three steps:
- Logging in to Omeka
- Adding items to Omeka
- Building an exhibit in Omeka
