Our database infrastructure for the digital library is still under development but we hope to have this up and running as soon as possible. We have now been unable to install Omeka into a sub-domain of this website. As described in their website, Omeka “is a free, flexible, and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions.” (Reference: ).
Our next stage is to develop and populate the Omeka database to make it an effective online searchable resource. To visit and the Omeka-powered digital library, please visit omeka.livingrefugeearchive.org/
The digital library, and the collections and items therein, will be catalogued to professional standards utilising Dublin Core metadata standards and will be indexed using terminology from the International Refugee Thesaurus. The digital library will be divided into different thematic and resource focused collections.
