  • Newsletter: 2023 Year in Review
    Message from the Director Happy New Year! We were grateful for an eventful 2023, which included celebrating Omeka’s 15th anniversary. Over the course of those fifteen years, the Omeka Team has grown to include ten regular staff members who work hard to design and develop open source software that makes it possible for users to describe, publish, and activate their cultural heritage materials in flexible and accessible ways. Their efforts have resulted in two open-source web publishing platforms, one software as a service platform, seventy-five modules and plugins, and twenty themes–not to mention the countless addons designed and developed by the Omeka community of users. None of the team’s …
  • End the Year with an Omeka S Release Candidate!
    Welcome to the last gasp of 2023! The Omeka Team has been hard at work to offer users, designers, and developers a little surprise before December slips away. Today we’ve packaged and released the Omeka S 4.1 release candidate for your review and comment before the final release early in 2024. (Install this version in a development site, not one that is live for production.) Over the past year, the whole Omeka Team has been focused on making significant improvements to the page authoring experience for site builders and theme designers. The current method of page building by stacking of individual blocks in a page, which we’ve come to call “Normal flow”, will continue to be available for use …
  • New Omeka S Theme Release: Freedom
    Today we have the pleasure of releasing a new theme for Omeka S. Freedom is a highly configurable theme designed especially for users with data-rich Omeka S installations. It provides a very clean and compact interface while offering users the opportunity to configure the header, banner, footer, image decoration, the appearance of resource types and classes, and a gird or list browse layout. Additionally the theme takes advantage of Omeka S 4.0’s ability for users to configure resource pages to capitalize on left, right and main column regions to place media, metadata, linked resources, sets, and site pages where the resource appears. The release of this theme also offers us the opportunity …
  • Exercise Some Control
    One of Omeka S’s oldest modules, Value Suggest is a utility tool that aims to improve resource description and access by making a huge range of vocabulary services available to resource template creators. Many of those longstanding services, such as the LIbrary of Congress Linked Data Service, OCLC Metadata Services, and The Getty Vocabularies, will be familiar to our users. Regularly updated, the most recent version of the module offers several new powerful services. Now, users wishing to disambiguate researchers and research organizations now have the option to draw on the information provided by ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and Research Organization Registry (ROR). Moreover, …
  • Omeka is Celebrating Its 15th Anniversary and We have New Offerings for You
    When we released Omeka Classic fifteen years ago, I don’t know that any of us really thought we would still be working hard to provide open source web publishing platforms for stewards of cultural heritage and their communities. But, thankfully, here we are! As the Omeka Team celebrates its fifteenth birthday, the project is sustainable and continues to provide software alternatives that serve the needs of our users as they endeavour to reach, engage, and collaborate with their communities. In part, this longevity can be attributed to the intelligence and dedication of the more than two dozen designers, developers, and digital humanists who have worked with Omeka over the years. In part, it …
