sevensleepersIn this first webinar for WebWise Reprise, Shalimar White discussed making digital images of Dumbarton Oaks’ Nicholas V. Artamonoff Collection available through an online exhibit using Omeka. In this 90-minute webinar, Ms. White talked about the process, experience, and lessons learned from this project.

WebWise Reprise is brought to you by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), in cooperation with Heritage Preservation, and is based on presentations made at the IMLS 2013 WebWise Conference.

Since 2000, the WebWise conference has brought together representatives of museums, libraries, archives, systems science, education, and other fields interested in the future of high-quality online content for inquiry and learning. This annual conference highlights recent research and innovations in digital technology, explores their potential impacts on library and museum services, and promotes effective museum and library practices in the digital environment. It also provides recipients of technology-based grants from the Institute an opportunity to showcase their exemplary projects. This year’s conference, WebWise 2013: Putting the Learner at the Center, was held in Baltimore from March 6-8, 2013.
