SiRO Exhibits

SiRO curates digital exhibits related to studies in radicalism where users can remix online content into essays, annotated bibliographies and other formats. Exhibits can be used to workshop papers and exchange ideas with your peers, or share it with the world wide web under a Creative Commons License. You can create the exhibit using the Omeka Exhibit Builder or any other online exhibit builders and send us your exhibit for curation on the SiRO website, to studiesinradicalism@gmail.com. If selected, the exhibit will be listed under the Exhibits tab on the SiRO page, plus SiRO will create metadata so that the project  will become part of the SiRO resource database and be searchable as a SiRO object. The exhibit will also be advertised through SiRO’s newsfeed.

To create the exhibit, you can take the help of your My SiRO account, with which you can collect and tag items of interest from your search results. You can manage these resources using your My SiRO page, along with saved searches.

By setting up a free SiRO account and by making a personalized My SiRO page,  you can organize your collections, tag and annotate items that you can later highlight in any exhibit you create.

Everyday users of SiRO are important contributors to the project. We encourage you to create a My SiRO account which will let you collect, tag, and annotate digital objects you locate in SiRO as part of your own research. The tags you apply to objects in your personal collections then become part of the SiRO system, helping other users locate and re-purpose scholarly materials.

SiRO is always in search of new projects and digital materials to be aggregated into the SiRO interface.  If you administer a project having to do with radicalism studies that you would like to be peer-reviewed by the SiRO Editorial Board please contact us at Studiesinradicalism@gmail.com.
