Omeka is a content-management system for building and curating collections of digital objects. Developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, Omeka provides a robust platform with embedded Dublin Core metadata fields, which allow students and scholars an easy interface to build collections. Omeka also enables teams to work on one project.

Scalar is an open-source web publishing platform developed by the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture in association with Vectors and IML specifically for multimedia, born-digital publications. Because Scalar is designed to be a semantic web authoring tool, it provides unique design features for non-linear, networked publications in which media, text, images, hyperlinks, tags, and video and audio files can be woven together and juxtaposed. Scalar is a great resource for student projects because it supports multiple authors, but Scalar also provides a great platform for born-digital scholarly publications.

Launched at Stanford University, Lacuna Stories is a platform for annotating texts, images, video, and audio. Taking notes, tracing themes, and reflecting on content are key pedagogical features of higher education, and Lacuna Stories offers a platform for collaborative reading and annotating through shared note-taking, providing a fantastic resource for engaging students in active reading.

Unlike other tools and platforms, Mukurtu is designed explicitly in collaboration with indigenous communities with digital heritage projects in mind. In collaboration with Warumungu community members and elders such as Michael Jampin Jones, Kim Christen and Craig Dietrich produced the Mukurtu Wumpurrarni-kari Archive. Mukurtu is a Warumungu word meaning “dilly bag” or a safe keeping place. This early project has led to the development of an open-source, content-management system designed to be flexible enough for diverse communities to organize and curate digitally their culture and heritage according to their own epistemologies. Mukurtu CMS is currently supported and maintained at the Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation at Washington State University.
