Libraries

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

Anyone looking to build a summer reading site that uses badges?

Hi Everyone,

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)

http://teensummerchallenge.org/

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.

Thanks in advance for the information,

Tool Lending via Drupal?

At Code4Lib Vancouver, talking about using ILS's for lending tools vs. building a special purpose site for it, and the subject of Drupal came up (of course). Has anyone built a tool-lending Drupal distro for tool lending cooperatives that don't want to go as far as to use a full ILS for that purpose?

Display EBSCO Discovery Results in Block Instead of Page

Cheers everyone.

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;

MkDru: themeable search and metasearch for Z39.50, SRU and SOLR targets via Pazpar2

At Index Data we've been working on MkDru, a Drupal module for Pazpar2, our XML webservice based metasearch engine.

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.

Drupal OG 7.2 Content Types and Permissions

I am trying to set up Organic Groups with unique content type permissions using Drupal 7.23 and OG 7.2.

My previous OG experience has been with Drupal 5 and OG 5.4.

While previous OG versions relied on additional modules to provide detailed group and global permissions, OG 7.2 appears to have this built in, but I am finding the official Drupal.org site OG 7.2 documentation rather sparse and not very helpful. I have searched the Internet and all I can find are instructions or videos on how to set up various previous versions.

Tracking outbound links (databases!)

I am looking for a way to track outbound links. One idea is to use Google Event Tracking

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/eventT...

Is anyone else using google or another tool to track outbound links?

I have already tried using data from EZproxy but I am concerned that I am missing clicks from internal users who validate via IP.

Thanks in advance for the information,
