Omeka Toolkit: Getting Started with Omeka
This guide is a toolkit of resources about Omeka compiled for a series of workshops for Virginia Tech faculty, staff, and students, as well as our larger community.
What is Omeka?
Omeka is an online open-source content management system for digital collections. It allows you to upload a variety of item types/files and organize them into digital collections and/or exhibits. For this reason, Omeka is best used for projects that contain a collection of things rather than text or data based work (e.g. blogs, data visualizations, etc.)
To learn more about items and collections, see the Collections & Items tab of this guide.
