Manage research collections of images and their metadata, and create online exhibitions.
Omeka is an image repository originally designed to help small galleries and museums create online exhibitions but which can also be used as a research database, especially if you work with cultural collections as an historian or archivist. Omeka makes it easy to search across your collection and handles images, video and descriptive text.
In this workshop you'll learn the basics of Omeka including formatting data, creating metadata, building a collection and creating an online exhibition.
This course is FREE. To attend you must be from an AAF institution (this includes University of Melbourne and surrounding institutes).
Duration: 3 hours
What you need: You will need to bring your own laptop and work through the installation instructions before arriving.
