Under the Hood
The new site uses free, open-source software called Drupal. The site is hosted on a State server in Columbus with many other libraries' web sites as part of the OPLIN Dynamic Website Kits project. This hosting costs the library only a small amount of money and allows us to take advantage of the project's economy of scale in terms of running and maintaining a server as well as maintaining the software.
The lists of recently added, recently ordered, and most popular titles are generated by custom scripts written by library staff. The scripts are made possible by our Millennium software from Innovative Interfaces, Inc.
