NorthEast Research Libraries Consortium (NERL)

The NERL website is a custom theme built on Yale University’s Drupal 6 content management system (CMS), and takes full advantage of Drupal’s modularity and flexibility, which enabled us to develop a custom architecture for organizing and sharing NERL’s web content.

Much of the content on this website is restricted to NERL members, utilizing Drupal’s content access and user/role capabilities.   Drupal views are used to display different slices of the database information.

I worked with NERL to consolidate two existing html websites (public and private) into a single site.  I analyzed business needs, wrote the project specification, built the site within Yale’s drupal instrallation, worked with numerous technical service providers, and supervised external designers and programmers.

The ODAI website is a custom theme built on Yale University’s Drupal content management system (CMS), and takes full advantage of Drupal’s modularity and flexibility, which enabled us to develop a custom architecture for organizing and sharing ODAI’s web content.  I worked with ODAI to re-conceive their web presence, analyzed business needs, wrote the project specification, built the site within Yale’s Drupal installation, worked with numerous technical service providers, and supervised external designers and programmers. Taxonomy is used to bring together content based on a custom subject scheme developed to explore and highlight the diversity of Yale’s digital ecosystem.
