I wanted to ask a general question of the group regarding digital signatures.
A digital signature in the truest sense links a unique document and it's contents to the "signature" of the person signing it, and the combination of the two constitutes the digital signature.
What I'm trying to find out is if anyone has done something similar to this:Read more

I was wondering if anyone else was looking at online badges for their summer reading sites.
Here is an example of the idea (in WordPress)
And if you are looking at this idea how are you going about it, ie hiring a company or building it in house. I would also be curious about the modules are you using?
I know that BiblioCommons has something like this but I am not looking at that option at this time.

EBSCO provides a Drupal module that will display results from EBSCO on a custom page http://mysite/ebsco/results.
There is a template preprocess function for the page, and a tpl.php file for the page.
Instead of displaying the page, I want to load the results into a custom block. I'm using the API call of
drupal_form_submit('my_form_name', $form_state) to make the submit call. I set the $form_state['variables'] as below before making the call:
// set $form_state array values
$form_state = array();
$form_state['values']['lookfor'] = $search;
The primary application is searching one or more Z39.50 targets and having a lot of hooks into Drupal to theme it flexibly (facets as blocks for example). But you can search SOLR too, tweak the ranking, and more.Read more
