Omeka at NYPL: Eminent Domain

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

I’m pleased to announce the New York Public Library has released its first online exhibition using the Omeka platform. Eminent Domain is a photographic installation chronicling the changing nature of urban space in New York City today. NYPL Labs is planning a series of projects using Omeka and its developers have become very active on the Omeka forums and dev list. I think I can speak for the entire team and say we’re very grateful for their help and impressed with the results of their first foray with Omeka.

Exhibit Building

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

It’s April, so it’s time to think about exhibits. You might ask why in April? Even though the official equinox is in March, April feels more Spring-like bringing with it metaphors of renewal, growth, and productivity. Perhaps we are getting too deep, but we are curious to know if you have built any exhibits since the release of Omeka 0.9.0.

To share your work, we created a special section in the forums called “Use Cases” where you may show off your exhibits and/or sites–finished or in-progress works. You can even comment on the exhibit development process or lessons you learned along the way.

We are tweaking the exhibit builder feature for future releases and are very interested in hearing about your experiences.

Please take a minute to post some of your projects or thoughts in the Use Cases section of the forum.

Happy Spring!
