Digital History Hub uses Omeka, a popular, open-source web application used around the world to manage and search cultural collections. It's easy to use, with a wide range of features built-in and available as add-ons.
Digital History Hub is fully hosted and supported, so there's nothing for you to install or configure. We'll create an Omeka site just for you, and you can get started creating collections and exhibits!
More information about Omeka is available at http://omeka.org including extensive documentation and a video tour to help you get started.
Omeka hosting is available by annual subscription, with prices and plans available to suit every budget and size of collection. Every subscription includes:

Tell us a bit about who you are and what sort of digital history collections you'd like to put online, and we'll help you select a subscription and add-ons.
Is my site shared with others or just for me?
Your site is your own. Although all sites are hosted at digitalhistoryhub.com, each site is separate from all others and will showcase only your collections.
How secure is the data I upload?
Your Omeka site will be hosted on one of our servers located in Vancouver, which we manage ourselves (as opposed to servers located on an anonymous "cloud" platform). Physical access to our facility is restricted to only our staff, and our infrastructure is protected by modern firewalls and other security technologies.
Is my data backed up?
Absolutely! Your site is backed up both within our facility and offsite. Multiple, redundant levels of backup are present, with daily, weekly and monthly versioning. Just ask if you'd like more detail.
How can I get help or training?
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-866-266-2525. We're available by phone and email Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm Pacific Time, though we monitor sites 24/7 and will act after hours if there is an emergency.
I already have an Omeka site. Can you host it?
Yes! We can help you transfer your site and data to our hosting service, upgrade it, add new themes, and more.
Do you work with Omeka Classic or the newer Omeka S?
Both. We recommend Omeka S for most new projects, but can host, support and offer Omeka Classic too.
