Chicagoland Drupal4Lib BoF (3/20, 1:30p)

Submitted by Leo Klein on Wed, 2/4/09 (10:46am)

I'm pleased to announce a Chicagoland Drupal4Lib BoF on Friday, 3/20 (1:30p-4p) at DePaul's Loop Campus, 1 E. Jackson (10th fl., Rm# 10028), Chicago.

GOALS OF THE CHICAGOLAND DRUPAL4LIB BoF

The Chicagoland Drupal4Lib BoF will be an opportunity for librarians to get together and discuss how they use (or would like to use) Drupal in a library context. We'll ask people to present projects they're working on and we'll field questions on problems and approaches to implementing Drupal. All levels of knowledge from expert to n00b are welcome.

Old Year Resolution

Submitted by Leo Klein on Wed, 12/24/08 (11:44am)

drupal_250x250.gif Generally you make resolutions for the New Year but this is something I want to get done in the day or two I have off prior to January 1: Convert about half a dozen Drupal sites (like this one) to 6.x. It's about time!

Drupal4Lib - One Year Old!

Submitted by Leo Klein on Tue, 12/16/08 (10:29am)

I almost forgot about this but it's been a year (give or take a few days) since I started the Drupal4Lib ListServ.

I sent out the word on December 5 and within two days we had 200 subscribers.

As I said on a post that I sent out to the group, the original motivation for starting the List remains the same now as before, namely to provide an easily accessible environment to get helpful and reliable information on Drupal in a library context.

I'm pleased to say we now have 474 subscribers -- almost all who have been wonderfully 'helpful and reliable'.

So thanks to all the subscribers and happy holidays!

Ideas for Drupal4Lib IG Event at ALA in Chicago?

Submitted by Leo Klein on Tue, 11/18/08 (1:31pm)

This is still a while off but I thought I'd put out an initial request before the holidays officially begin. It's a request for ideas and suggestions for the meeting of the LITA Drupal4Lib Interest Group at the 2009 ALA Conference in Chicago.

Feel free to leave comments either here or on the LITA Blog at: http://tinyurl.com/Drupal4LibALAchicago

Drupal Camp Chicago: Wow!

Submitted by Leo Klein on Fri, 10/24/08 (3:57pm)

Hoo baby, they got a big crowd for the Drupal Camp Chicago. Easily over 100 attendees!

We had so many people at the Library BoF -- most of whom weren't librarians -- that I had to shift into "presentation" mode -- with a wonderful assist from PLA Webmaster Doug Dawson, Brian Smith from Palsnet.info, a librarian from Brookfield Public and the owner of a development shop creating a website for one of the regional library organizations in Washington State.

If I missed anyone, please forgive me. We really could have gone on for another hour.

Drupal4Lib BoF at ALA Anaheim

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sun, 6/29/08 (7:49pm)

We got a great crowd of around 20 people for our Drupal 'Birds of a Feather'. The above is a shot of everybody in the BIGWIG Bloggers' room -- just before we got kicked out by some group from YALSA (bums, we'll get even)!

(We then proceeded to the next available empty room and had our get-together there.)

First up on the agenda was setting up the Drupal IG, making sure we have enough signatures and asking for volunteers to serve as Chair and Co-Chair. For the first year, Leo Klein (i.e. me) graciously volunteered to serve as chair and Ian Chen as co-chair.

LITA Drupal Interest Group?

Submitted by Leo Klein on Fri, 6/20/08 (10:02am)

A couple people from LITA have helpfully suggested that we set up a Drupal Interest Group (IG).

I think this is a great idea since, as I understand it, IG's get a slot at one of the officially sanctioned meeting rooms come convention time.

Aaron Dobbs, Mary Taylor and our friends at BIGWIG have been very supportive in allowing us to have our Drupal4Lib BoF in the Bloggers Room but by having the IG, we can do a couple of things more, including as I said, maybe getting a room of our own next time round.
