Joanna DiPasquale, Web and New Technologies Developer at Columbia, will discuss the libraries’ use of Fedora and Omeka to put curatorial staff in control of a collection-oriented Web publishing tool, while ensuring adherence to best practices. She will also address the needs, implementation, and “lessons learned” over the course of the project.
