Drupal4Lib Interest Group (LITA) Community
Hi all -
Sharon Shafer (UCLA) and I are your co-chairs this year. I just uploaded our September quarterly report. As you can see, things are just starting to get off the ground!
I have requested a meeting place/time for Midwinter in Atlanta, where we will continue the lively discussion that took place in Orlando for possible activities for the group.
We will be reaching out soon for agenda items for the Midwinter meetings, as well as any other ideas you might have, e.g. networking between conferences, the group's web presence, activities for Annual in Chicago, etc.

- Migrating the Library [GWU]
I may have missed something so feel free to add.
I know a couple of library people are going to DrupalCon in Portland in a week or two.
Looks to me like a great opportunity to get together and talk shop. So how about if we organize a Drupal4Lib BoF -- maybe on the Wednesday (5/22) sometime mid-day or in the early afternoon?
Topics could be open or suggested ahead of time. People could present projects they're working on, ask whatever questions they want. It'd be a great time!
Feel free to leave a suggestion here or email me back.
Is this a good general time to meet? Do you have a topic you'd want to suggest? Any feedback is appreciated! And hope to see you in Portland!
Brian Smith of RAILS will talk about using the Adaptive Image and Flex Slider modules to create slideshows that automatically set image file sizes for display on mobile devices, large monitors, and everything in between. Michael Buhmann of the Skokie Public Library will discuss the new design and some of the modules for Skokienet.org. This event will be hosted in Skokie Library's new Business Center.
Beginners to advanced users are welcome, those who know teach.
For you non-drivers, the Skokie Swift drops you off walking distance to the library.
