Focused Lab


The Omeka Focused Lab meets weekly, and is open to anyone on campus working with Omeka.

Develop your skills through practice.  Draw on the knowledge, discoveries, problem-solving tricks, and dedication of other scholars and practitioners.  Sit in a room of hard-working colleagues.

Focused labs are informal groups of interested users who meet regularly to work on similar methods, platforms, or questions. In Fall 2017 we will hold the following Focused Labs:
