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.

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/ ).Read more

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!Read more

In September 2012, after hearing the Community Cultivation Grants form the DA announce several times on the Drupal Easy podcast, I applied for one and got it.
The grant was for $240 towards starting an all-ages friendly local contribution focused meet-up in Oak Park Illinois USA (which is a suburb just outside of Chicago). We meet at the Oak Park Public Library.
The grant covered $72 for 6 months of meetup.com
Reservations for space to meet at the local library was $20/month. We met there 5 times.
I'm using Drupal Acquia 6 with the Millennium OPAC Module.
I'm ultimately trying to make it possible for our site visitors to subscribe via email to an RSS view I've created (yes - I know emailing RSS feeds is anachronistic, but this is what the client wants). So I am trying to burn my feed to google feedburner so I can leverage their email subscription and statistics tools (but if anyone knows of a better/pure Drupal solution, I would love to hear about it. Please note: the solution has to allow unauthenticated users to subscribe).Read more

We have been planning to create an extensive online library. I have been looking around in drupal for a couple of days and came across some modules and examples. But still I am wondering if there are specific modules that should be used!
I would like to elaborate our case as follows:
We aim not only to make a catalog of books [with all its specifications, Book Title, Author, Genre, Pages, Publishing Year, Edition, Publisher, Keywords] but also completing it with biographies of authors, book reviews and discussions.
