Introduction to Drupal for Libraries

Instructor: Caleb Tucker-Raymond
Dates: January 4-29, 2016
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

There is a robust and growing community of libraries using Drupal, the open
source content management platform, to create and manage library websites
and services. In this 4-week course you will build a Drupal site from the
ground up, gaining hands-on experience with Drupal core tools and concepts.
We will pay special attention to Drupal features as they relate to the
specific organizational needs of libraries and library web services.

This is an introductory level course, and though familiarity with HTML is
helpful, it is not required. There is no coding in this course. Each
student will get a free development account with a cloud-based Drupal
service and will have continued access to their course website after the
course finishes.

Learning outcomes:

- Ability to build a website in Drupal 8.
- Hands-on experience using Drupal core features: fields, nodes, modules,
blocks, menus, users, themes and views.
- Knowledge of Drupal in the context of designing and managing library

Caleb Tucker-Raymond is a freelance web developer in Portland, Oregon
specializing in connecting library systems to the Drupal content management
system. Before that he worked as a public and academic librarian for 14
years in systems, reference, and the intersection of the two. He earned his
MSLIS with Simmons College.

This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that
participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The
class does not meet together at any particular times, although the
instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction
includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation
is in an online forum environment.
