Savvy Researcher Workshops - University Library

Do you have materials that you want to showcase online, but don’t know how? The Omeka family of online exhibit software supports digital exhibitions with minimal technical know-how required. In this workshop, we’ll use Omeka.net to introduce participants to digital exhibits. Whether you have a research project, collections of materials, or another type of project that can be showcased in an exhibit, the Omeka suite can work for you. Participants will learn: 

  • How to plan for a digital exhibit including lo-fi prototyping 
  • How to design an exhibit, and describe and upload materials 
  • Strategies for using digital exhibits for outreach and pedagogy
