The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Libraries have been using Omeka.net for online exhibits and as a portal for access to selected special collections, including Omaha Histories and the Queer Omaha Archives. This presentation will highlight our best practices for metadata, workflows, and exhibit-based storytelling through the use of the hosted Omeka.net service. We will discuss our local metadata practices and our experiences with batchloading metadata into Omeka.net. We will also describe our workflows for digitization requests, metadata alignment, quality control, and project tracking and discuss our use of Omeka.net as an exhibit platform to tell stories drawn from the U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel Archives. These experiences show how Omeka.net can be a valuable tool for collections and outreach efforts. Omeka.net has proven itself a valuable tool for collections and outreach efforts at UNO Libraries Archives & Special Collections.
