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).

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

Ex Libris's Primo in Drupal

Hi :)
We (a french academic library) are using drupal for our website (http://bu.univ-angers.fr).

We're considering using now Primo from ExLibris or Summon/Serial Solutions.
And of course, the integration of that possible discovery tool into our website is an important part of our questioning

On the Summon side, I know there's a module that works (at least one french academic library is using it > see "catalogue+" there http://bibliotheque.univ-paris-diderot.fr/ ).

Library BoF at DrupalCon Portland?

Only local images are allowed. I know a couple of library people are going to DrupalCon in Portland in a week or two.

Looks to me like a great opportunity to get together and talk shop. So how about if we organize a Drupal4Lib BoF -- maybe on the Wednesday (5/22) sometime mid-day or in the early afternoon?

Topics could be open or suggested ahead of time. People could present projects they're working on, ask whatever questions they want. It'd be a great time!

Feel free to leave a suggestion here or email me back. Is this a good general time to meet? Do you have a topic you'd want to suggest?

Any feedback is appreciated! And hope to see you in Portland!
