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.

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?Read more

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;
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.Read more
Hey there everyone,
Just wanted to send out a reminder that we still have some open seats in our Drupal 7 in a Day training session being held on the 25th of October. It's a great way to learn the basics, or see if Drupal is right for your company or organization.
The training will take place at our office in Waltham, which is easy to get to from major highways that surround Boston.
Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.Read more

I am looking for a way to track outbound links. One idea is to use Google Event Tracking
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,
Digital Branch Manager
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.
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.
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.
Many Thanks - MeganRead more
