WIMT Update: Drupal news and notes

FAQs in the new Drupal Site

We currently have FAQs in both our current website as well as in the LibAnswers system. In the new Drupal site, we will be integrating these two into a single, dynamic method of providing FAQs. We will be using the current LibAnswers system to create and maintain all FAQs and any page in the University Libraries site can optionally display a list of the top FAQs for a given FAQ tag in LibAnswers. From the FAQ, clicking on the question displayed on the Libraries site will take the user to the answer in the LibAnswers system. The user can then search or browse the LibAnsers system for more information. — submitted by Helen Smith and Charlie Morris
