    Exam module released on drupal.org

    We have created a module for holding exams using Drupal, Quiz and Organic Groups:

    http://drupal.org/project/exam

    From the project page:

    Enables you to use your Drupal site to hold exams. Integrates with the Organic Groups module so that all group members will be put into exam mode when the time for exam arrives. In exam mode the users can only access a predefined set of pages in a predefined order, and all blocks are hidden except those you want to be visible in exam mode. Exam pages are only visible when taking exams.

    Any feedback will be appreciated.

    Getting Help in the Drupal Community

    I've been thinking a lot about what the major hurdles are to learn Drupal. One obstacle I've encountered is even learning how to ask questions effectively in the forums and how to interact with the community. Someone posted this article How to Ask Questions from Hackers and it really helped me understand how community supported help systems work and what info I should include in my questions. However, the tone in that article is a little harsh and I think we could make a friendlier version that's more Drupal Community specific.

    Library website

    We're in the middle of building a new drupal website and I'm wondering how to best handle integration with library database searches.

    Our current (ancient) library website: http://departments.oxy.edu/library/ is using asp to route the search. Are there any modules or best practices for doing this in drupal? My guess is it would be something using PHP whether a module or custom?

    Thanks,
