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.
Christopher Harris and Andy Austin of the School Library System of Genesee Valley BOCES are writing an ALA TechSource Library Technology Reports Issue on Drupal in libraries. This issue is set to be released in May/June of 2008, so will be available when Chris, Andy and their colleague Brian present at ALA on their Drupal powered next generation library portal, Fish4Info.org.Read more
I just sent out the following announcement to various library-related email lists:
I'm pleased to announce a new ListServ for librarians called 'DRUPAL4LIB'.
As the name implies, 'DRUPAL4LIB' is for those interested in Drupal, a popular open-source CMS, as it relates to libraries and librarians.
The idea is to have a forum to exchange ideas and advice, share experiences, and maybe even collaborate on a couple of projects that highlight the use of Drupal in a library context.
The ever helpful Cary Gordon has kindly agreed to serve as "moderator" along with your's truly.
Send the command 'SUBSCRIBE DRUPAL4LIB First_name Last_name' in the body of an email to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.UIC.EDU.
Alternatively you can subscribe by selecting 'Join or Leave the DRUPAL4LIB List' from the DRUPAL4LIB Archives Page:
Everyone is welcome, whether beginner or pro!
Okay, this one is so far off it's almost crazy to talk about, but since they just posted it, I thought I might as well put out the word -- at least for people in the Chicagoland area interested in Drupal.
Drupal of course is a popular open-source content management system. I'll be giving an introduction to it at the offices of the Metropolitan Library System in Chicago on Friday, 2/29, 1:30-4:30. (Yes, leap year day!)Read more
Get release 5.2-1 here.
From the upgrade notes included in the release:
This upgrade is in response to the CCK security announcement.
While this security upgrade only affects a specific use of CCK that is not present in the DrupalEd configuration, anyone running DrupalEd is strongly advised to upgrade. A healthy dose of paranoia regarding security concerns can save you hours of time/emotional distress.Read more
The DrupalEd project is now live on Drupal.org -- we are now ready to use the issue queue to centralize discussion on the different install profiles. In starting to discuss the profiles, I suggest we use the following format, as we will need to answer these questions as we build the various profiles.Read more
