Collections are a way of grouping content in your Omeka site. The concept of Omeka collections originates from museum and archives collections; one cannot put a document into more than one box. You can create collections based on themes, time periods, or other shared attributes among your site's items. In Omeka.net, you can also use structures like exhibits, metadata, and tags to collocate similar items.
For more information on managing collections, please refer to the Omeka.net user guide.
The Exhibit Builder plugin allows you to develop online exhibits using items from your Omeka site. Exhibits are great ways to "exhibit" long form writing, incorporate outside research, include interpretation and analysis of site items, and highlight multimodal research. Within exhibits, you are really able to flex those creative muscles!
For more information about exhibits, please refer to the Omeka.net user guide. Instructions for creating an exhibit are also presented on this page.

Once you have entered the required data, click "Save Changes" to create your exhibit.
