Do you want to start an online digital archive but have limited funding and/or no access LINUX? OMEKA, the open source digitization software, has a sister site, OMEKA.net that we are using at Logan College of Chiropractic to create a searchable, standards-based website showcasing our archival collections. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the process Logan has gone through over the last year as we have digitized, created metadata, and uploaded to OMEKA.net. We’ll discuss the pros and cons and lessons learned and showcase what we’ve accomplished so far.
