Last Thursday, I was part of a group of librarians and archivists who attended a short training session on Omeka. While I attended a session nearly two years ago, I actually had not done anything in Omeka myself. Up to this point, I have only been working with our library IT staff who have been actually working in Omeka. CUA is exploring this as a presentation tool for our digital collections and exhibits.
From the listservs this weekend, I just found another example of a great digital collection using Omeka! UC Santa Barbara just announced the release of their new digital collection interface, clearly built using Omeka. They created the digital collection to make some of their hidden items more readily accessible, including: historic and artistic photographs, poster prints, music scores, audio recordings, videos, and picture discs.
It's a great collection with a friendly interface! Check it out!
