Omeka S workflow and customisations in a non-professional context

After some thought, I deemed it appropriate to share here this lengthy post which outlines our experience with Omeka S, including thoughts on a number of choices that needs to be made early on in the development of a digital archive and details about customisations to core modules and themes (some of which previously discussed in this forum).

I feel that especially outside of larger organisations it is useful to share experiences and thoughts on how to set up a digital archive with Omeka S.

I hope this is useful to others. Of course, feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

As I look forward to new Omeka S projects, I take it as a chance to thank core developers and all the nice folks providing useful answers in this forum for making Omeka S what it is, and making our digital archive possible.
