We are happy to announce that Omeka Web Publishing has been launched in the DotBlock Marketplace!
Omeka is a free, flexible, and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions. Its “five-minute setup” makes launching an online exhibition as easy as launching a blog.
Omeka may be easily downloaded and installed on a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) server. Each installation is equipped with an unqualified Dublin Core-based archive; 4 basic design theme templates that may be configured with different styles sheets to produce up to 9 different looks; an exhibit builder offering 12 basic page layouts and 4 different themes; tagging for items and exhibits; an RSS feed for new items; and COinS plug-in making all Omeka content readable by another CHNM-produced and IMLS-funded project, Zotero; and an easy way to write and publish simple web pages.
Omeka can be found here.
