METRO Case Study Published in D-Lib Magazine
The March/April issue of D-Lib Magazine features a case study on the open source collection management system, Omeka, used to create METRO's digital collections directory, digitalMETRO. Omeka was used as a test to determine the viability of this platform for member libraries interested in using Omeka to build and deliver their own collections. The paper addresses Omeka's strengths and weaknesses as a software platform for creating and managing digital collections on the web. The analysis includes an examination of original record creation and the extensibility of the system through the use of plug-ins.
