Omeka is a content management system that serves as open-source web publishing platforms for sharing digital collections and creating media-rich online exhibits.
About Omeka Classic:
Omeka Classic creates a publicly available web presence from the moment you create the installation, which you can build out and customize from there. Every Omeka Classic site initially includes pages for browsing Items and Collections as well as a home page. You can use these items in as many Exhibits as you or your users want to build.

These features are included in the core code as well as the plugins and themes which come bundled with Omeka Classic for download (Plugins: Exhibit Builder, Coins, Simple Pages; Themes: Thanks Roy, Berlin, Seasons).
There are also Skip Nav and ARIA Landmarks on all Omeka Classic themes produced by RRCHNM which do not come bundled with the download of Omeka Classic from Omeka.org (Emiglio, Santa Fe, Minimalist, Rhythm).
Please note that although the core code for Omeka Classic and its bundled themes and plugins conform to the above standards, sites built with Omeka Classic which have been customized or which are using non-RRCHNM themes and plugins may lack some or all of these options. While we encourage developers to consider accessibility, we cannot ensure that their code includes ARIA Landmarks, SkipNav in the themes.

About Omeka S:
Omeka S allows you to create linked data, using existing resources (items) to describe new resources. This functionality can be very helpful if you have multiple datasets which would benefit from relationships between the items (for example letter writers and their letters).
