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.
Does anyone have resources (like step-by-step tutorials) for building templates in Drupal? As part of my library job, I'm being pushed into designing templates which will need stuff like image resizing capabilities, uploading stuff, etc. I know very little PHP. The regular Drupal forums haven't been very fruitful so I decided to try out the libraries + Drupal community on here for pointers!

I just enrolled in this online class from Stanford: Introduction to Databases (http://www.db-class.org/). I don't have any idea what the quality of the lectures or class materials will be (or how helpful it may be to Drupal developers), but nothing lost in checking it out!
If anyone else enrolls and wants to study together (aka: let me benefit from your superior intellect!) just hit me up.

Do you love to develop and continually improve elegant, highly functional, user-focused websites?
Can you whip up delightful, well-designed graphics in your sleep?

I am trying to create event registration forms for my library's website. The Signup module its too restrictive in that it won't allow me to easily add custom fields (since the info the Children's Librarian need differs from the adult job search classes) for each event type.
I also need the system to automatically handle email and possibly SMS text messages. It'd be great if the information about registered patrons was ready to export.
Right now I'm experimenting with CCK Signup bit the documentation is nearly nonexistent.
We've put the final bits of our Drupal migration project out to bid, for those who may be interested. The RFP is available at: http://www.biznet.ct.gov/SCP_Search/BidDetail.aspx?CID=22626
It includes consultation and implementation of Apache Solr, as well as performance optimization.
Is anyone out there using SSL for secure logins on their Drupal installation? I'm trying to test the use of SSL in conjunction with CAS / Secure Pages to see if it works for us, but I'm running into configuration troubles on my Acquia DAMP stack, which I use for testing (on a Win PC). I think the issue may be as basic as being at the OpenSSL or Apache level, but I'm not sure. It looks like php was built with openssl enabled in the Acquia stack (per phpinfo).Read more
Yo estoy trabajando con Drupal hace varios años. En la página oficial del Drupal hemos visto que hacen conferencias, eventos en diferentes lugar del mundo sobre Drupal. Aqui en Cuba deberíamos crear un evento anual por ejemplo sobre Drupal donde las personas puedan intercambiar conocimientos y dudas, como mismo se desarrolla el FLISOL en Cuba y se realizan reuniones cada cierto tiempo, podríamos gestionar lo mismo en los Joven Club para dicho evento, donde podrían venir además usuarios de Drupal del mundo que quiera participar.
I am creating a site which will basically be an annotated bibliography of resources related to the subject matter. As part of this work, I would like to have a way for people to input ISBNs and have Drupal "call" to another site to get data about the book.
Do you have any suggestions on how to do this? I am using Drupal 7.
Attention as of June 30 we are not accepting any new respondents to this notice. Thanks to all who responded.

Simply to position myself a bit: I am aware of the various standards in the archival world (MARC, ISAD, ISAAR...), but for this project I need to describe records of a journal. The fields are the usual:
