The use of the Omeka platform for digital libraries in the field of mining
This paper will introduce Omeka, a platform for presentation of digital collections and a system for the management of their content. We will illustrate its application in the field of technical sciences (more specifically, in the field of mining) on the example of the digital library ROmeka@RGF. We have decided to use Omeka because it is simple, because it possesses comprehensive supporting documentation and because it does not require any attainment in information sciences, which makes it accessible for most users, and especially for mining engineers, to whom this digital library is chiefly intended. Documents assembled and stored in this digital library will serve as a basis for future research, extraction of terminology, tagging, extraction of knowledge etc.
