This group is for libraries - public, academic, school, law, what-have-you. It is not about code libraries.
Ask questions and/or tell us what your library or organization is up to.
Please add your library to our Drupal libraries roster
For an introduction to how Drupal can be used by libraries, take a look at Ellyssa Kroski's excellent overview.

The Indian Ministry of Culture has initiated a project to digitise India's libraries and make the content available online. The initiative is called the National Virtual Library of India (http://www.nmlindia.nic.in/pages/display/38-national-virtual-library-of-india-(nvli)) and is is a massive project being executed under the guidance of IIT Mumbai. My Company, UniMity Solutions, along with a few others who are in the Drupal space in India have been selected to build the initial prototype.Read more
I am a new comer to this group, since i did not know about the existence of this Drupal- Libraries group until attended a BOF session at Drupalcon New Orleans this week.
My Library is currently looking into the possibility of moving to Acquia or Panthenon to host our drupal sites because we do not have DevOps engineer nor server administrators, and most likely would not have the resource to recruit one.
My questions to you would be that:
Are you library using a cloud-based hosting? If you, what is your overall experience?
Thanks in advance!

A quick heads-up that I've just added a Birds of a Feather session at DrupalCon Barcelona, to discuss Drupal for GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums). If anyone with interest or experience in using Drupal for this is going to be there next week, it'd be great to see you there.Read more
Hi there, I'm hoping a SQL ninja will find it in his or her heart to provide me with some advice.
I've created a page view which does the following:
- Pulls in nodes from two different content types
- Filters by two different term references, one for each content type.
It's not working, although in my mind (and limited sql understanding), it should. I think maybe there's an issue with the inner joins, because it seems the sql statement would working if they weren't there.
Anyways, I've attached two images, one of the api and one of the actual sql statement.Read more
I have just gotten involved in a Digital Library project for which we are considering to use Drupal. I have started looking through the existing digital library projects using Drupal and wondered which distro is best suited for our current requirements. We have started off with a small set of bibliographic data (around 1500) correlated with images (for manuscripts and books) of which some are provided with full text search capabilities via an implementation of the IA BookReader (https://openlibrary.org/dev/docs/bookreader).

Over the last year, we've worked with UCLA Library and Indiana University Library to design their Library websites. Had a lot of fun and learned a lot. yeah

I wrote a (long) blog post about the issues we faced in designing for location ... I'll summarize it all here for you.Read more
