News Ringwood Public Library Launches Digital Collections Site

If you thought only large urban libraries (eg, New York Public Library) could launch a unique Omeka-powered digital collection site, think again. The Ringwood Public Library in New Jersey recently released, the Upper Ringwood Collection with a great theme designed by the Web Developers Studio.

In this site you will find over 120 images browseable by four categories: people and places, events and keepsakes, schools and churches, and mines and stables. These categories are actually Omeka collections. While most of the packaged themes offer browsing by all items, exhibits, and collections via the main navigation bar, you can gently tweak the theme to allow browsing by specific collections, types, or tags.

The Upper Ringwood Collection provides another excellent example of how Omeka’s themes can be modified to create attractive and distinctive looks for any web project.
