Descriptions

Drupal is an open source content management tool that allows users to build complex websites without extensive programming, making it perfect for libraries. 

Participants in this online webinar series will be able to:

  • Build a professional site from the ground up.
  • Install Drupal, move sites between servers, upgrade core and modules.
  • Add and use essential modules.
  • Work with themes.
  • Build forms and content types (include references between content types).
  • Build Views, including contextual filters.
  • Evaluate modules and themes.
  • Work with multimedia.
  • Integrate social media.
  • Employ best practices for building professional sites with Drupal.
  • Identify common mistakes and how to avoid them.
  • Develop good site architecture, strategy and Search Engine Optimization

This is a live webinar series, not a recorded one, and attendees will be able to ask questions as needed during webinars.

Part I will be followed by "Mastering Drupal 7 Webinar Series - Part II (2 Weeks)".

Coming in February 2013 - Is your library committed to developing a Drupal website?

Then our other "Drupal Webinar Series Using the Sample Site for Libraries (3 Weeks: February 2013)" webinar series may be what your library is looking for!

This three-week series uses the sample site that has been developed specifically for libraries during the Spring 2012 Drupal Series. Participating libraries will receive a sample site at no cost. Staff will take part in free webinars to help them to modify/customize the sample site for their own library.

Please note: This series is designed for libraries only, not for individuals wanting to learn Drupal skills. Participating libraries are required to launch their website.

If your library wants develop its own Drupal site rather than use a sample Drupal site, then the "Mastering Drupal 7 Webinar Series" is a better fit.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Mi-Sun Lyu at lyu@librarylinknj.org.
