Welcome to the North Carolina Pottery Center's Online Collections!

We are using Omeka as a way to display the items in the center's permanent collection, as well as make "temporary" exhibitions available to a wider audience long-term. Neither of those things is a quick thing, so this will be a long-term project.

Also, we have recently been uploading temporary exhibitions to give them a more permanent online presence.

What is Omeka? In techie speak... Omeka a "flexible and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions. Omeka falls at a crossroads of Web Content Mangement, Collections Management, and Archival Digital Collections Systems."

Let us know what you think of our Online Collections via Omeka.
