Target Audience

Any library staff who are interested in implementing their library site in Drupal. No Drupal experience or programming skills required. This is designed primarily for libraries and may not be suitable for individuals wanting to learn Drupal skills.


This four part webinar series is an in-depth course on how to manage content and administer the Sample Drupal Library Website that LibraryLinkNJ created for our member libraries. LibraryLinkNJ member libraries are eligible to download this sample site at no cost, and can modify/customize the sample site for their own library at their own pace. LibraryLinkNJ has made some improvements on the sample site.  Please find more information about our Drupal Sample Website for Libraries.  

The series will consist of 4 live online sessions: Three days of 3-hour training sessions, each with two hours of training and a final hours for Q&A, and a follow-up 90-minute session for any questions that might come up after the first three sessions and you start working on your site.

(Due to the October 22 session cancellation, November 12 session has been rescheduled from 1:00-2:30 pm to 1:00-4:00 pm and November 19 session is added.)
