Welcome to the University of Victoria's Omeka-S exhibition platform. This library-managed resource provides faculty and students a way to tell stories around library collections for a wider community beyond the classroom--it's experiential learning at its best.
Those involved with this type of public scholarship and engagement learn the following skills:
- Digital preservation
- Metadata standards for description
- Object biography
- Image editing
- Collaborative writing
- Storytelling & narrative frameworks
Digital Exhibits offer a way for faculty to offer hands-on learning in the library as well as offer students skillsets beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. Exhibit building tends to be a collaborative enterprise, so the process also teaches cooperation, project management skills, and digital curation abilities.
Omeka S is a powerful way for you to connect with objects, the community of practice, as well as the wider public. Welcome!
