Omeka is a free, open-source content management system for online digital collections that allows users to publish and exhibit scholarly collections and cultural heritage objects. This workshop will delve into the fundamental aspects of digital literacy necessary for a successful digital archival resource. Students will learn concepts related to communities of practice, documentation, metadata, file formats, standards, and copyright concerns. We will conclude with a review of site management and digital preservation best practices.
