Creating and managing digital archives, catalogs, and collections is a growing concern as organizations seek to manage files and records, metadata-gather, and enable complex searches of their cultural production, ephemera, archives and/or born-digital assets.

This one-evening, two-part workshop goes in-depth on two popular and well-supported open-source digital archiving and collections management softwares that address these issues. We'll look at Omeka, used primarily in academic and digital humanities projects; and CollectiveAccess, used primarily in GLAM [Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums] projects.

The first half of the workshop will orient you to who uses and how these softwares are implemented, what to expect and consider in a cataloging software project; and includes an overview of features,  metadata schemas, and problems to look out for.
