TypeContent Management System

Omeka is a free, open-source content management system for online digital collections.[1] As a web application, it allows users to publish[2] and exhibit cultural heritage objects, and extend its functionality with themes and plugins. A lightweight solution[3] in comparison to traditional institutional repository software like DSpace and Fedora, Omeka has a focus on display and uses an unqualified Dublin Core metadata standard.[4][5]

Its software is currently being used by the New York Public Library,[6] the Newberry Library, as well as many small museums and historical societies.[7] The Missouri School of Journalism uses Omeka to share their archive of 38,000 photographs from the Pictures of the Year International contest.[8][9][10]

Developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University,[11] Omeka was awarded a technology collaboration award by the Andrew Mellon Foundation[12] and is used to teach curation.[13][14]
