Online exhibits showcase MSU's Special Collections in an appealing and organized fashion. MSU Library hosts Omeka classic for use by MSU students and faculty to create stand-alone online exhibits highlighting their research
The Mississippi State University Libraries is pleased to announce the availability of a new web publishing platform, Omeka, that can be used by faculty, instructors and researchers to create dynamic digital exhibits that showcase collections of digital images, text and other multi-media formats. Omeka, a powerful, yet easy to use platform, is an open-source application used by many institutions, libraries and museums to create online exhibits from their collections. Omeka is also used as a publishing platform for faculty engaging their students in digital humanities work. Omeka was selected because of its easy of use, flexibility in the types of digital objects that can be added and the wide variety of plug-ins that can be used to enhance the exhibit.
