Drupal is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) that many libraries use to create well-designed, easy-to-use and manage websites. Go step-by-step through the decisions and tasks needed to develop and launch a Drupal-powered site and learn the advantages of the open source approach. The book offers hints and suggestions to work with your IT department, colleagues, and management as you develop your technical specifications. The implementation chapter guides you through installing Drupal, adding modules, developing your own themes (page layouts), and describes librarian-created modules that have been shared with the community and can be downloaded and installed on anyone's site. You also get advice on marketing your site, best practices for project management and development, and measuring the success and impact of the site once it launches.
