ABSTRACT

Korea has a high standard of IT environment to serve exhibit programsthrough the web with internet propagation and IT technology. However,the web exhibition of public institutions not only seem to introduce off-lineexhibitions but also not to invigorate. It is caused by the lack ofawareness, the cost of system installation and the lack of professionalmanpower. In this situation, OMEKA could suggest practical solutions toarchives where need their own exhibition through the web. Especially, itwould helpful for small record management organizations which are notenough budget and personal. OMEKA is an open source software program for digital collection andcontents management. It has an affinity with users unlike traditionalarchives service programs. It also has been variously used by libraries,museums and schools because of exceptional exhibit functions. In this article, we introduce to the installation of a practical use aboutOMEKA. Regarding to OMEKA features, we consider it to raise exhibiteffects. OMEKA would reduce the cost related to plans of exhibitions because itcould display various contents and programs which reflecting characteristics of institutions. In addition, the availability of installation and widespreadtechnological environment would lessen burden of public institutions. UsingOMEKA, they would improve service level of public institutions and, makeusers satisfy. Therefore, they can change the social recognition of publicinstitutions. OMEKA can contribute to various exercises of public records. It is notjust the stereotypical system but, serves exhibition and collections with thestrategy which each public institution would like to display. After all, it notonly to connect to users with producers but also to improve the publicimage of institutions positively. Then, OMEKA would bring the great resultthrough this interaction between public institutions and users.
