Using Metadata

From ISMuseum


Omeka is a specialized web-based database that employs metadata to organize a collection.

Omeka Information

See the Omeka website for information about the application and codexes it uses.
In particular, this page explains how Dublin Core is used by Omeka users.

Predefined Item Types

Omeka has 16 item types already defined. See Omeka Item Types for their names and definitions.
The item type list in Omeka can be edited to include, for example, ISM's specialized vocabulary, making it easy to implement new terms.

ISM's Omeka Installation

At this time, the application is installed, but is empty pending definition of ISM's metadata vocabulary.
See ISM's Omeka page to access the collection.
