Drupal at the University of Minnesota: A Case Study

Over the last several years, a growing number of libraries have begun to use Drupal to manage their websites. At the University of Minnesota, the Bio-Medical Library redeveloped its site with Drupal in 2006 and, after several grant-funded Drupal projects, the main libraries decided to migrate this year. In this presentation we will outline our transition to this open source CMS, including the solutions we found, techniques we employed, and problems we encountered.

Wayne Loftus is Science Librarian, and Cody Hanson is Technology Librarian at the University of Minnesota Libraries - Twin Cities.
