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.
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.
The Frisco (Texas) Public Library is looking for a developer to build a new FPL website using Drupal based on the design and site map work completed by our redesign team. We are looking for expressions of interest / bids from individual contractors or companies. We are open to working with someone or a company outside the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
The developer should be ready to perform the following:
•Build and implement design produced by library staff
I'm using drupal-6.20 i think all stuff is good but suddenly show the message when i login to my site:
warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in C:\AppServ\www\drupal-6.20\includes\mail.inc on line 193.
Unable to send e-mail. Please contact the site administrator if the problem persists.
I wrote the correct the username and password and verified SMTP to be like :
;For Win32 only.
;SMTP = http://localhost.com
smtp_port = 25
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:

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!
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:
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.
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 domainname.com/test. 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.Read more
At Index Data I've lately been working on a Drupal module for Pazpar2 (http://www.indexdata.com/pazpar2), our XML webservice based metasearch engine. Check it out in the git sandbox (http://drupal.org/sandbox/skomorokh/1103554) I've created (D6 for now but a D7 branch is on its way). While very much under development, basic functionality is all there and it would be great to get feedback as I polish it for release.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more

I'm interested to hear if there are any libraries with experience in creating WARC indexes from their Drupal websites. From what I read in the Exlibris Primo documentation WARC indexes are required so that Primo can harvest the website data and include in its search capability. Have you done this for your library website / library catalogue search?Read more
