This guide was designed to help you complete your interpretive group project about LGBTQ+ history on campus for American Archives Month. You will be using a web publishing platform for sharing digital collections and creating online exhibits called Omeka. You will also be utilizing physical and digital collection materials from the Shippensburg University Archives.
The digital exhibit you will be creating in Omeka is called "Out of the Archives: LGBTQ+ Life at SU". This exhibit is part of the site shippensburguniversityarchives.omeka.net. After you are added to the Archives' Omeka site, you will gain access to edit the exhibit.
For assistance with Omeka, contact Professor Fic directly (firstname.lastname@example.org), or use the "Schedule Appointment" link in blue under Professor Fic's profile photo in the left hand column to schedule a research consultation.
To visit the Archives to view collection materials, make an appointment by contacting Professor Fic, or Melanie Reed (email@example.com), Archives Technician.
Consult the user manual for instructions on how to use Omeka.
