Please forgive cross posting...

Hey all,

If anyone knows of a module that will do the following or has any advice it would be most appreciated.

The university is implementing Joomla and we have some database driven pages that allow for our authors to add multiple categories to an item. So for instance, if we added PubMed to the Databases and Resources page the librarian adding PubMed could check medicine, nursing, full text, etc so then a user could go to a drop down menu and choose a category to see what Databases and Resources are under a specific category. Basically, it means a resource can show up under multiple categories. To see it in action go here http://www.uab.edu/lister/tools/. I can't find any module that does anything like this.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

"In order to be really good as a librarian, everything counts towards your work, every play you go see,  every concert you hear, every trip you take, everything you read,  everything you know. I don't know of another occupation like that. The more you know, the better you're going to be."
