Drupal for Libraries - Slides

Submitted by Leo Klein on Fri, 2/29/08 (6:34pm)

First, I'd like to thank everyone for coming. I appreciated the energy and enthusiasm -- plus the good questions.

Above are the slides for the first part. For the second part, see the screencast "Creating a Library Database Page with Drupal".

I should have the audio file up in a few days. [Done 3/4/08]

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me.

Again, thanks both to MLS and to the people who came!

UPDATE: Nice news from Slideshare:

Your slideshow Drupal for Libraries has been included in the Spotlight section on SlideShare.
