Publishing with Omeka (part II) [Digital Publishing Workshop]

This workshop will cover more advanced and specialized uses of Omeka.  We'll learn about customizing themes, writing plugins, and using the Omeka API for data transformations.  Specific use cases may include using Omeka as a "backend" for a customized presentation layer, modifying existing themes' appearance or functionality, and sharing or reusing data via the Omeka API.  

  • Overview of theme architecture and design considerations

  • Look at plugin structure + code stub

  • Omeka API use cases (migration, transformation of data)

The Digital Publishing Workshop series invites faculty, graduate students, and staff to explore digital publishing topics through informal workshops focused on specific concepts or tools. Hosted by Duke Libraries Digital Scholarship Services and co-sponsored by Trinity Technology Services, this series will help participants learn about practical ways to plan, develop, and contribute to digital publishing projects in the humanities.


Sessions feature brief topic overviews and tool demonstrations with open Q&A. Presenters will also highlight resources in the Libraries and at Duke for pursuing further work.  Following each workshop, participants are welcome to linger in the Studio for hands-on practice or follow-up consultations.
