Linked Data, Omeka S, and New Jersey Slavery Records – DHI Event on Mar. 29, 2023

Jesse Bayker

Created by the Scarlet and Black Research Center, New Jersey Slavery Records is a new portal that aims to document the history of slavery in our communities through digital archival sources and linked open data.

In this workshop, digital archivist Jesse Bayker will demonstrate the website as a tool for teaching and research. He will also discuss how our researchers are building the website using Omeka S, an open-source web publishing platform for digital cultural heritage collections. He will highlight key differences between Omeka S and Omeka Classic.

This event will be held virtually.
