Re: [CODE4LIB] Code4Lib North | Meetup!

Right now both weekends work for me.  I know that for me, and probably for
many others, the sooner the date is made firm, the easier it will be to make
sure that the chosen one *cough* will stay free for this.

   Those both seem like good dates.  And they both work for me.  I'd love
   I vote for a full-day hackfest, though.  A half-day isn't enough to
   get into things.  I don't mind getting my own lunch.
   Thanks, Nick and John.  I'm looking forward to it.

Re: [CODE4LIB] A to Z lists

2011-02-20 Thread Riley-Huff, Debra
We built our A-Z list, Databases by Subject and Database Trials sets in
Drupal. It has worked out really well for us and we also have those lists
populate our subject guides through taxonomy.

If you are interested in how we built any of this let me know.

 Hi Code4Lib-ers,

 I want to chime in and say that I, too, enjoyed the streaming archive from
 the conference.

 I also have a question: my library has a horribly antiquated A to Z list of
 databases and online resources (it's based in Access). We'd like to do
 something that looks more modern and is far more user friendly. I found a
 great article in the Code4Lib journal (issue 12, by Danielle Rosenthal 
 Mario Bernado) about building a searchable A to Z list using Drupal. I'm
 also wondering what other institutions have done as far as in-house
 solutions. I know there're products we could buy, but, like everyone else,
 we don't have much money at the moment.

 Thanks for any info or advice!
