We Would Like To Thank

The UVSS website is powered by Omeka, a content management system built and maintained by the Center for History and New Media, and designed for scholars, museums, libraries, archives, and enthusiasts. The site uses a number of plug-ins, developed by both the CHNM and by other users, including: Contribution, Geolocation, SimplePages, SimpleContactForm, IntenseDebate Comments, YouTube, and Social Bookmarking. The site takes advantage of several existing 3rd party services, including the Google Maps API, the YouTube API, Google Calendar, and IntenseDebate.

The UVSS website is using the Omeka Theme "VoicesForTheLake", designed and developed for the project by a local Burlington web development firm, Webfluency. Webfluency also developed the YouTube plug-in used on our site to help simplify hosting of submitted videos on YouTube.com, and made changes and enhancements to the GeoLocation plug-in.

ECHO and Webfluency have shared the VoicesForTheLake theme, the YouTube plug-in, and source code for GeoLocation and Contribution modifications under a GPL license, enabling us to learn from and build off of their work for this project.

Voices for the Lake Project Manager, Bridget Butler was very helpful in lending her advice as we have gone about setting up this site. Monique Priestley of MÉPriestley: Digital & Graphic Design has been extremely helpful in getting this site up and running. We couldn’t have done it without either Bridget or Monique. Thank you!
