Working with Omeka: Building a Community of Users
May 7, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm| Humanities 1, Room 210 | Free
Join us for an all day symposium about using Omeka across the university and imagining the future of Digital Exhibit Building at the University of California.
Calling all scholars, museum professionals, librarians, archivists, researchers and educators. Learn how to use Omeka to share your research or collections with the world, build online exhibits, display documents and oral histories, or create digital archives. Omeka is designed with non-IT specialists in mind, allowing users to focus on content and to foster user interaction and participation.
Join us to explore the possibilities of using Omeka across the university and imagining the future of digital exhibit building at the University of California. Through presentations and directed conversations, this day-long symposium will yield inspiration for teaching, research, publishing, and future development.
The symposium will feature a keynote address, “How can you tailor your Omeka site, and Why?” by Patrick Murray-John, Research Assistant Professor and Omeka Developer Manager at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.
This event is targeted to tool developers, researchers, librarians, archivists, instructors, and graduate students from across the UC system. The event is open to all interested and will be especially of interest to those already working in Omeka to develop digital asset libraries, curate research material, teach visual arts, or cultivate digital literacies.
Registration is required. For more details and registration information, visit: http://library.ucsc.edu/workingwithomeka
