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 UCLA Library has made a significant commitment to Drupal over the past three years, creating a new web site in Drupal and implementing the Islandora repository (a Drupal front-end to the Fedora Commons repository). We are ready to implement new services and applications in Drupal, some using angular.js. We also have some amazing collections to make publish and allow our campus community to explore, often in collaboration with innovative faculty and graduate student collaborators.
We are looking for a Drupal developer for a full time career (permanent) position to help realize these projects.Read more

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.
Thanks in advance for the information,
