Sharing Your Digital Projects and Data – Adv Omeka/Neatline

In our hands-on session, we will be using Neatline to construct exhibits on top of Omeka.

Neatline is a free, flexible, and open source tool that builds on Omeka to create spatial-temporal narratives that leverage digital collections. It is accesssible, extensible and provides a means to combine a variety of additional textual and visual media to create compelling and engaging digital exhibitions.

In this tutorial, we demonstrate and encourage you to try creating a Neatline exhibition. The steps in this tutorial will guide you through setting up, populating a ddeploying a Neatline exhibit. It builds on experience gained in the Omeka and Creating Omeka Exhibits tutorials. You will require experience in Omeka to work with Neatline – although they actually function in distinctly different ways.
