Humanities Computing is able to provide free, Drupal based websites to all Humanities Division faculty and staff in support of research, academic events, and other collaborative projects. On this site you will find examples of model websites built with Drupal in use throughout the division as sites for departments, centers, programs, and conferences and colloquia.
The Humanities Division is not the only unit on campus using Drupal.
The individual model sites on the site are cross-listed by type and by the amount of effort and know-how that were required to build them. Almost all of the sites presented here were built by staff, faculty or students in the division with no experience at all in web design or development. The design notes accompanying each example are intended as helpful hints to others wishing to build something similar.
Please take a look around. On occasion we’ll also post announcements & updates about WordPress beneath this post with reports on new features, plugins and themes. Please contact Peter Thorson in Humanities Computing if you think you would be interested in building your own Drupal site or would like us to build one for you. Further information can also be found on the Drupal FAQ??.
Finally, Humanities Computing offers several other web-based publishing systems better suited for some more specific tasks than the heavier and more general purpose Drupal.
For very small/simple sites and time/event-driven sites please consider one of our WordPress blogs.
For more collaborative and documentation oriented projects consider using the humanities wiki.
