In this presentation we discussed a collaborative effort that led to a digital exhibits program at the University of North Florida’s Thomas G. Carpenter Library. Using Omeka Classic, exhibits are created that foster discovery of content from Special Collections and University Archives in a visually appealing and thematic way. Additionally, the platform brings exhibits that are temporary and physically located in the library to a much broader audience. We discussed ways to adapt a custom theme vs using a prebuilt theme to deliver the user experience desired. Other topics covered include design challenges, options for customization, accessibility considerations, workflows for adding content, and analytics.
