New to Omeka? Curious as to what it is? Already a user with a wish list of desired custom changes? Want to brainstorm about work flow and solutions for not only VR managers but faculty and student users? Then this is the group for you! Rather than bill this as a “user” group, the emphasis will be discussion about ways that Omeka can be a new tool in any VR toolbox, complementing, rather than supplanting, other systems. Plugins allow it to be used with Zotero, SharedShelf and other systems, and it can be used in student presentations and all sorts of online exhibits. There will be discussion of both Omeka.net (free, hosted) and the Omeka.org (full local server installation) versions.
