Today, the Omeka team is releasing the first beta of a new plugin: Reports. Reports lets you create a formatted report from a set of selected Omeka items. You can save information about thousands of items at once, and if you add new items, they’re automatically included in future reports.
The most exciting feature is that Reports let you create a PDF with printable QR Codes for your Omeka items. Mobile phone users can scan the code and will be sent directly to your site where they can learn more about an object on display in an exhibit.
The plugin also supports HTML output, and it can be extended to create a report in almost any format.
Download the 1.0 beta and try it out. Remember, this is a beta release, so it’s not quite ready for use with production sites.
