Marc Bess, Director of Usability at the Atkins Library Digital Scholarship Lab, used Omeka to create a virtual exhibit of Silver Age superhero comic books from the Atkins Library Special Collections. The exhibit particularly highlights comics of the era published by industry leaders DC Comics and Marvel Comics. Selected comics from the collection will also be on display at Atkins Library later in the semester.
UNC Charlotte faculty members and graduate students can use Omeka to create digital exhibits and collections with primary source material from Atkins Library Special Collections.
Omeka is a free, flexible, and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions. Omeka is designed with non-IT specialists in mind, allowing users to focus on content and interpretation rather than programming.
