- Omeka installation
- folders and files packaged together in one main directory on your server that work together to build an Omeka website.
- The basic unit of an Omeka site. An item can be anything: a photograph, a work of art, a person, an idea. You’ll describe each item, and you can upload files to represent it, too. You’ll build your Omeka site by assembling items.
- A set of items that you’ve grouped together. Your Omeka site can have multiple collections, but an individual item can only belong to one collection at a time.
- A thematic tour of your items. Each exhibit has pages, and pages can be nested. A page is a group of items (along with descriptions). You can have multiple exhibits, and items can belong to multiple exhibits.
- Item Type
- An item, can be many different things, like a photograph, a website, a book, or a person. An “item type” is just the kind of thing the item is. You can choose from a built-in list of item types, or you can create your own.
- Simple Page
- A web page on your Omeka site that isn’t part of an exhibit or item. For example, you can add an “About” page using Simple Pages. Pages can be nested.
If you want to create something more elaborate in your exhibit, you might explore the many plug-ins available for Omeka.
- CSV Import
- Contribution to allow users of an Omeka site to submit items (subject to moderation)
- Dublin Core Extended for a fuller complement of metadata fields than the default DC
- LC Suggest, which lets you auto-complete metadata fields from the Library of Congress’s authority files (e.g. for subject headings)
- Shared Shelf for pulling in images from an ARTstor Shared Shelf
- Geolocation for items, using Google maps
Some of these plugins require one of the paid service levels on omeka.net (but can be installed free on a self-hosted omeka installation).
You might also check out Neatline, a suite of Omeka plugins for maps and timelines (Scholars’ Lab, University of Virginia). Not available on omeka.net, this requires additional setup. However, you can try it out in the Neatline Sandbox, or see the Neatline Demos.
