I am a neighborhood historian who is considering obtaining grant funding to hire a freelance Omeka developer.
I need the developer to use the Omeka platform to re-create an online-only River Terrace History Scrapbook (see http://riverterracehistoryscrapbookdc.org) that was launched in September.
How much would such a project cost, at a minimum? As explained on the website, the Scrapbook is:
- An online-only collection of articles, photos, newsletters, and other memorabilia.
- Freely available to anyone who has access to a web browser, via the search feature or via clicking on one of the 12 categories.
- Scaleable; anyone can submit their River Terrace history for consideration – by the Scrapbook Administrator – to be added to the Scrapbook.
- Maintainable by the Scrapbook Administrator, a non-developer.
I do not need a custom theme; the one used for the Hurricane [Katrina] Digital Memory Bank, Centennial Memories [Bowling Green State University], http://www.cgpcommunitystories.org, or something similar, is fine. And the domain registration and the web hosting for the Scrapbook have already been paid for.
