Hi everyone! I was hoping someone might be so kind as to answer a few questions I have to see if Omeka will be the right fit for a project I’m working on.
I’ve been tasked with creating a public-facing website for a bunch of archival material (photos, audio files, PDF documents, maps). It sounds like Omeka will be a great fit (and much less of a learning curve compared to Drupal). I’ve got it installed locally as of this morning, and a few questions have come up:
- Can an Item be assigned to appear in multiple Collections?
- Can you create custom taxonomies? For example, if I need a “Person” field to behave like tags, is that possible?
- Somewhat related… can you sort by/filter by the Dublin Core metadata fields on the front-end? For example, is there a mechanism to, say, show all Items with the same content in the “Creator” field?
Thanks in advance for your help!
