fringe benefits

A lot of extra (detachable-from-Neatline) goodness is resulting from our decision to reconceive this project as an approach rather than a stand-alone tool — and therefore as a collection of Omeka plugins. One example of this is the recent release for testing, by Scholars’ Lab R&D, of a SIMILE Timeline plugin for Omeka. Wayne Graham, who heads our R&D unit, takes the opportunity to describe the creation process on the Scholars’ Lab blog, in a very useful post (very creatively) titled, “Omeka Timeline Plugin.”

Welcome to Neatline!

Neatline is a project of the University of Virginia Library Scholars' Lab, and has been funded through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Library of Congress. Software development is now feature-complete, and we'll launch the project on July 2nd, 2012.

Neatline allows scholars to combine timelines, maps, and scholarly narratives to explore literary and historical materials in new and exciting ways. A suite of plugins for the Omeka framework, Neatline facilitates the creation of spatial and temporal views of cultural materials.

We offer it as a contribution to interpretive humanities scholarship in the visual vernacular.
