D-Lab: Convening Room (Barrows 356B)

Drupal is a powerful open source content management system that provides a more flexible platform for developing web-based digital research projects than WordPress or Omeka. This workshop will cover the basics of how Drupal works, how you can create templates for storing your research data, and how you can organize, display, and analyze that data. No programming experience is required, and no code will be written as part of this workshop— we will be working exclusively with “modules” that have already been built, and can be configured through a user interface.

While Drupal is a good choice for many kinds of projects, it is especially well-suited for projects that aim to create a “database” of some sort, giving you the same functionality as a MySQL database, without having to learn to manually create tables or write SQL queries.The emphasis of this workshop will be research projects, and faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates are particularly encouraged to attend. While the material covered in the workshop can be applied to administrative (e.g. departmental, organizational, etc.) websites as well, we will be focusing on research use cases.
