  1. A few of us here at Indiana University are exploring options for fostering image-based bibliographic collections. Most of these to date are driven by scholars so they serve very specific research questions, but our Rare Books library could very well benefit from such a platform for documents with broader appeal. Poking around the forums and the interwebs, I noticed a lot of interest in the Zotero plugin, but I am curious to see some examples of Zotero-based collections using Omeka as an end-user delivery system. Please share! Thanks!

  2. Hi,

    We used Zotero to collect and save webpages and files shared by different Occupy groups and then uploaded those to the Occupy Archive: http://occupyarchive.org. If you look in the Occupied Places section (http://www.occupyarchive.org/collections), you will see what we uploaded.

    I know of some graduate students using the plugin to then upload sources to Omeka, but I don't know if any of those sites are public.

  3. Thanks Sheila. Looking at the occupyarchive.org page, I see that your individual item pages have a single set of elements. The Zotero Plugin (for 1.5) creates a whole new set of Zotero elements alongside the Dublin Core--a few of which (like "Title") get automatically mapped onto the Dublin elements. How did you combine and re-order the elements as they appear on public item pages on occupyarchive.org? Thanks.

  4. Yes, it does, but we didn't combine or re-order elements. We only show metadata fields that are filled in and we also got rid of the element-set headings so that you don't see the distinction between Dublin Core and Zotero.
