Making the seminar paper relevant to students' professional development is a challenge in humanities classrooms. Professors are increasingly encouraging alternative research projects that convey the same amount of information mastery as a traditional seminar paper, but that also give students marketable skills in online publishing and digital humanities. Omeka exhibits are just one example of this sort of alternative research product that students can develop with minimal technical skill, but to great effect. This poster describes the experience of providing technical and project advisory support for graduate students in Art History who were tasked to produce online exhibits for their seminar. We offer our syllabus, sample reference and technical questions, tips for talking about metadata and copyright, and links to some of the student projects.
