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

Resources

For an introduction to how Drupal can be used by libraries, take a look at Ellyssa Kroski's excellent overview.

You can also check out library-related Slack channels on the Drupal team (#libraries) and the Code4Lib team (#drupal4lib).

why use Drupal for city government?

Hi Folks-
Can anyone point to a list of resources/arguments describing why Drupal is clearly the best CMS choice for city government?
Anything that takes a comparative approach and considers open source vs. commercial products is ideal.
You don't have to sell Drupal to me, I'm already a fan... I'm just doing some homework.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have-
Nate

There is a sea of modules for Drupal. The selection can be daunting. I am going to list a few modules that I have discovered while solving real issues on a new intranet that I created for our library. Many of these I learned about from various Lullabot resources.

Making a Node Secure/Limited to one user Role?

Hi Everyone, I hate to use this listserv for trouble-shooting, but we're all librarians here, so I hope you'll understand.

I'm trying to accomplish creating a node that will only be visible by our library board for board packets. The actual meeting minutes, etc are all public information and those get placed front-and-center, but the agendas and packets we would like under lock and key and only have them accessible to the board.

Court or Law firm libraries using Drupal

Hi Folks,

I am setting up a Drupal site for a court intranet. Drupal is a new concept to the people who will be configuring it and using it. I have pointed them to some Drupal library sites, and a couple books (O'Reilly's Using Drupal, and Front End Drupal) to get started. They have asked if there are any court or law firm libraries using Drupal that they could look at. I didn't see any on the Libraries using Drupal wiki - did I miss them, or does anyone know of some sites I could point them to?

Thanks,
Carol

A report on the first Drupal session for Jamaican Librarians

Hi everyone,

Just attached a report on the last Drupal meet-up sponsored by my Department for Jamaican librarians. The Jamaican community interested in learning Drupal is so far small in number, but should grow.

I have sent it as an attachment. It is a one page report, very brief and to the point covering what took place and some of the topics discussed.

Just sharing on this development in Jamaica.

Regards.
