A a pe gbon ni, a ki i pe go.
We put heads together to be wiser, not to be more foolish.

This visual index is the final post of a spectacular journey that completes The Languages of Berkeley: An Online Exhibition. Since February 2019, we have published one essay per week, showcasing an array of digitized works in the original language. The contributions of so many of you inside and outside of the UC Berkeley Library have been essential to its success. Now that the project is done for now, may it live on in the cloud, continuing to welcome and inspire readers at Berkeley and beyond.
Thanks for visiting.

Omeka for Digital Collections and Exhibits
Thursday, April 12th, 4:10-5:00pm
D-Lab, 350 Barrows Hall
Omeka is ideal for creating and displaying an online collection or exhibit composed of many digital items. If you have a bunch of digital images, scans, and files around a certain theme or project, and you would like to organize, describe, and showcase these files, Omeka may be a good fit for you. In this hands-on workshop, we will learn how to add and describe items in Omeka, the basics of the Dublin Core metadata schema, and how to create webpages with the Simple Pages plugin.
