On Monday, April 7th, Steven Cohen and I will be moderating Track E:

Session B202 – Drupal & Libraries - Tuesday 11:30 am - 12:15 pm

Ellyssa Kroski, Reference Librarian, Columbia University

Drupal, a free, open source content management system, can be utilized to create substantial social networking websites. It offers a flexible modular configuration that allows website community creators to pick and choose functionality ranging from blogs, social bookmarking tools, private messaging, tagging, chat, groups, and events calendars. This session discusses how libraries and librarians are utilizing this increasingly popular new technology to create community-based websites.


My Schedule


I will be arriving on Sunday, April 6th and staying until Wednesday April 9th.  I will post more details as we get closer to the conference.
