Greetings from the Digital History Lab. Below is your weekly fixing of Digital History content and news.
- Omeka Workshop 10/05, 4-5pm: Join us for an introduction to Omeka, a content management system used to create and display online exhibits. Librarians Sarah Carrier, Amanda Henley, and Sarah Morris will provide an overview and brief tutorial of Omeka, talk about how it can be used in teaching, and share examples from classes that have used it. Use of the University Libraries’ Omeka instance to create exhibits for research projects will also be discussed. Please RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Two alternatives to Omeka that can be used to make and host online exhibits are the Digital Public Library of America and Wax. Something to consider for those of you who might be interested in hosting online exhibits for your research or teaching. Also, Google Arts and Culture offers multiple online exhibits that might prove useful in the virtual classroom.
- Are you looking for ways to make your writing process more efficient? The Writing Center recently released a blog that showcases the benefits of the word processing and organizational tool, Scrivener.
- The DHL continues to offer consultations on digital tools for research and teaching. Email us with questions or requests.
Have a great week!
