The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) at George Mason University is pleased to announce the public beta release of Omeka S (1.0). Omeka S is a completely new software package with the same goals and principles of Omeka Classic, the open source web-publishing platform that has been an invaluable tool for colleges, universities, museums, historical societies, and individual researchers seeking to build sites that showcase digital cultural heritage materials.
Created with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Omeka S is designed to serve the needs of medium to large institutional users who wish to launch, monitor, and upgrade many sites from a single installation.
"This next-generation Omeka platform will really expand the capacity for cultural heritage institutions and universities for web publishing with linked data,” said Sharon Leon, director, public projects, RRCHNM. “The full community of users will have new ways to work with rich materials in their digital work."
