DrupalCon Barcelona - GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) BoF

alxbridge's picture

A quick heads-up that I've just added a Birds of a Feather session at DrupalCon Barcelona, to discuss Drupal for GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums). If anyone with interest or experience in using Drupal for this is going to be there next week, it'd be great to see you there.

This is nice, for the people that can not be in Barcelona can you share your presentation..

There wasn't any presentation

There wasn't any presentation - the BoF was more a chance for interested people to talk together. The notes from the session are in a Google Doc:


One conclusion that came out of the session is that it would be good to have a Drupal Group which serves the whole GLAM community (as a supplement to the existing separate ones for Museums and Libraries, but with a broader remit). This is something I'll be setting up shortly.

Drupal GLAM?

Very interested in your idea. Any more progress on setting this group up?

This is something very interesting, I believe we should organize a small conference (meet up) in order to meet and share our knowledge and see how Drupal can fit in GLAM or any other sector related to cultural heritage and humanities.

I would like to use Drupal 7 and Amazon S3 for hosting many static images (100000) any recommendations?
Also i am wondering if every time that someone visiting my site and viewing an image i will get charge form Amazon?

Many thanks

If you are just wanting to

If you are just wanting to host images, may I ask why you think Drupal is the right tool? If you still want to use Drupal, I would recommend starting with Acquia's Lighting Distribution as that makes media management easier.

And yes, Amazon will charge you for bandwidth.

drupal vs other

Dear Meezaan
Thank you for your very much for your support.
I am more familiar with Drupal7 than any other system this is the reason i would like to use Drupal, but do you recommend something else?
Another solution that i am thinking and i would like to have your opinion on that is to mount the file folder on NAS storage..
Also i will take a look to Acquia Lighting Distro but this is D8 only?
Thank you again for your help
