Omeka Contracting and Support Services

Experience

Since 2007, the Omeka Team at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University has worked to develop and support standards-based, accessible, open source web publishing with the Omeka family of products. Omeka Classic has been a reliable and popular platform for researchers, teachers, enthusiasts, libraries, archives, and museums to publish and narrate their digital collections. For those unable to support their own installations of the software, the team offers Omeka.net, a hosted service with many levels of storage and functionality to meet the needs of a variety of user-types.

In 2012, the Omeka Team started developing a new version of the platform called Omeka S designed specifically with the principles of linked open data (LOD) in mind. Developed for medium and larger GLAMs, Omeka S uses JavaScript Object Notation-Linked Data (JSON-LD) as its native data format, which makes it possible to enmesh Omeka S in the LOD world.

During this ten year history, the Omeka Team has designed and built a host of user-friendly, and award-winning cultural heritage sites, showcasing the power and flexibility of the software. Furthermore, they strive to bolster the work of the user community through carefully crafting end-user and developer documentation, through designing dozens of plugins and themes that respond to user needs, and through diligently offering guidance and support on the user forums.
