Archives in the Cloud

by

Omeka, an open source content management software that allows users to create digital archives online, has just released another cloud-based web publishing  platform called Omeka.net Beta for museum archives and scholarly collections. Supported by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, Omeka aims “to make collections-based online publishing more accessible to small cultural heritage institutions, scholars, enthusiasts, educators, and students.”  Omeka.net features a range of services to support individual scholars or small collections that include a free website and up to 500 MB of storage; large institutional archives can sign up for a premium paid plan that provides significantly more storage and additional web support and resources. For more information on Omeka and Omeka.net Beta, check out their website and the recently published article in The Chronicle of Higher Education.
