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.

Using SSL / Secure Pages for Drupal

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).

Crear un evento de usuarios de Drupal

Buenos Días
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.

Use ISBNs to pull in book data from other websites

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.

Drupal Listservs and Drupal Commons

My organization is looking at developing a listserv that integrates with our Drupal website, and which has a fairly user-friendly interface, as well as an archive and search function. We are also considering whether Drupal Commons might be a solution for implementing the listserv. One difficulty is finding sample listservs and websites that can help us think about functionality and design. Would anyone know of sample sites using Drupal listservs? Thank you!

Number of hours left on a drupal project

I'm not going to lie - it's taking me a lot long to complete our sites' migration to Drupal than I ever would've expected. We're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but it's still a ways off. The problem - I need help!
The good news - the possibility of getting a Drupal firm on contract with the state at some point to get some professional consulting. The bad news, I need to figure out a reasonable estimate of how long it would take a pro to do the following:

Web File Manager module and batch file upload?

I am new to Drupal and am working on a test site. I like the concept of the Web File Manager, but cannot find a way to do batch file uploads of images and documents. Is this possible? Our current library website has hundreds of files that need to be transferred. I'm hoping not one at a time.

Test Site Best Practices

I have my production site just about ready to go (Yay!) but, I would like to have a test site for updating modules, etc. Ideally, I would have a completely separate site either hosted or locally to play with, but I have yet to get a local site working well and I don't have the budget to pay for two sites hosted. Bluehost said I could just make a folder called test and move a complete Drupal install there and then my test site would be I have some ideas about doing this, but if anyone has done this before, I would love some ideas on how to best accomplish this.

At Index Data I've lately been working on a Drupal module for Pazpar2 (, our XML webservice based metasearch engine. Check it out in the git sandbox ( I've created (D6 for now but a D7 branch is on its way).

Archiving obsolete materials created in Drupal

What is the best way to archive documents created and used in a Drupal intranet? I work for an NGO that is setting up their intranet using the drupal platform, and we are organizing our materials using "documents" under each "group". These documents are office policies, forms, etc. They are updated every year or so. We would like our employees to have access to the old versions while being able to identify the most current iterations of these documents.

Site Migration FAIL

I'm attempting to migrate my functioning Drupal site from one host to another. I have tried several different methods (importing the database, then loading the files; using their Drupal install and then loading my database; cursing at the computer) and all have given me different error messages that seem to be at the database level. I have changed sites/default/settings.php to reflect the new database information. The error seems to always come from something called the lock.ini file. I've looked around online and talked with the new hosting company for a bit, but have not had any luck.
