Notes on Stanford's new library site built with Drupal

Stanford has recently launched a new main library website, based on
Drupal 7.  Stuart Snydman wrote a nice blog post describing the technical approach taken for
some of the more important features on the new Library website, including

  • the use of cloud hosting of Drupal
  • simpleSAMLphp Shibboleth implementation
  • integration of the SearchWorks API into search results and for link-management elsewhere in Drupal
  • a panels-based approach to library guides using widgets (fieldable panel panes and in-place-editing)
  • library hours, which includes a RESTful API that is soon to be documented.
