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,

Starting Up a Small Single Room Library for a Non-Profit: Oh Where to Start...

Hello Library Gurus,
The Space Foundation announced the establishment of the Zimkas Space Library, honoring a really cool guy who has been a tireless advocate for Space Foundation endeavors for over 27 years! Currently, all the furniture and shelves are in place. It looks great, with tons of donated books in piles all over the floor while things get "cataloged" and shelved.

New site feedback request

Hi,

Just about to put our new Chattanooga Public Library site live. I was wondering if any library Drupal gurus would like to look and provide criticism. NOT fishing for praise, just wondering if my peers notice anything that could be improved via module or theme change, etc.

Theme is based on Omega 3. Lots and lots of module.

Event Registration - Anyone using Drupal to manage this function?

Does anyone have any recommendations of which modules are best to use to handle library event registrations?

Ideally we would want a facility to add custom fields in the signup form by event type so we can have some extra fields like age for children's events. We need to have the ability to generate / export a list of attendees.

Also, automatic generation of email registration confirmation / event reminder emails would be good.

The ability to generate / export a list of attendees.

We do not need a e-commerce facility at this stage.

Any suggestions?

Many Thanks - Megan
