Combining low-cost or free DAM tools and WordPress, scholars can curate teaching and research collections with searchable metadata. Focusing on teaching and research collections, we will demonstrate organizing, metadata, and the use of WordPress for publication. We'll also explore how to build a dynamic collection with these tools.

Outcomes: Learn about a selection of tools that work well together * Learn the rudiments of how to build a dynamic collection with WordPress as the presentation platform * Learn how to make the most of institutional and noninstitutional assets in a curated collection
