Omeka is a next-generation open source web publishing platform and content management system designed for museums, libraries, historic sites, historical societies, scholars, enthusiasts, and educators . Created at RRCHNM in 2007, Omeka is now one of the most used content management systems in the humanities. In 2016, RRCHNM shifted Omeka to the Corporation for Digital Scholarship, a non-profit corporation created by several faculty from RRCHNM (and others) in 2009. CDS has been financially responsible for this very successful software since 2013.
