I'm here at NYU teaching future archivists & public historians about all things digital. Several students are doing independent projects -- small collections & exhibits.
Do you think I should give each of these students their own installation of Omeka, tied to their own separate MySQL databases, or should I just have one installation of Omeka and encourage them to build their own collections / exhibits? I'd kind of like them all to have the experience of administering Omeka, but that could run into a lot of installations. Also, they do tend to want their own *site* for each project, which would be easier to handle with multiple installations.
