I’ve taught many workshops on using Omeka, which is a tool for easily building online scholarly archives and exhibits, and I’d be more than happy to teach one or even two (Introduction and Advanced) workshops on it at THATCamp Jewish Studies. Here’s a couple examples of Omeka exhibits built at Denver University, one on the topic of “Pioneering Jewish Women of Colorado” and one on the topic of “The Loewenstein Family: A Story of Survival.”
Here’s a description (from an earlier workshop):
Omeka is a simple system used by scholarly archives, libraries, and museums all over the world to manage and describe digital images, audio files, videos, and texts; to put such digital objects online in a searchable databases; and to create attractive, customizable web exhibits from them. In this introduction to Omeka, you’ll create your own digital archive of images, audio, video, and texts that meets scholarly metadata standards and creates a search engine-optimized website. We’ll go over the difference between the hosted version of Omeka and the open source server-side version of Omeka, and we’ll learn about the Dublin Core metadata standard for describing digital objects.
