Play time is over!

Sadly spring break has come to an end, and back to the grind we go : (

The Images groups was very productive over the break and we have uploaded all of our classified chosen photos…except for the ones from one of the photographers who did not give us the rights…but what can you do? Our launch date is still on track, which is great since we were mentioned in the Alumni News Letter this month so ready or not here we go! Here is a link for anyone who is interested in checking it out: Alumni News Letter.

We have run into one annoying snag, we can not figure out how to upload photos into the exhibits that we created. We did just fine with the collections, but navigating these exhibits is a doozy! Other than that things are going just fine.

It was great to meet with Dr. Hana’s map class this past Tuesday because Sara and Brandon took an abstract idea that we had and turned it into a reality. We are pretty excited about the map and believe that it will add and extra dimension to our site that the alumni will really enjoy.

I hope that you all enjoy our 3-5 minute update tomorrow because it will sound very similar to this post.

    That’s awesome that you guys have already had several ways to advertise your site opening (first the talk and now the announcement in the Alumni News Letter).

    We’re having the same problem with the Exhibit/Section/Page thing. Hopefully some sort of solution can be found. Good luck on your progress!

    A photographer didn’t give you the rights? I guess I just assumed that because they were up on the web archive for the school, permission had already been given for the photos. Or did the photographer just not give permission for your particular site?

    Are you trying to upload the photographs into the exhibits directly, or are you trying to bring the photos already uploaded to the Omeka site into your exhibits?
