Beginning in October 2015, we created a working group of art historians already using Omeka, and convened the group at the College Art Association conference in February 2016. Over the course of one year, each working group member advised the Omeka team on plugin development and theme design. They did this by testing on a development site and responding through online surveys and email conversations.
