Main technical specifications

The main technical specifications to mention from the Socialbiblio website are the following.

Socialbiblio is an online community on librarian science, documentation and information management, focused on elearning. Despite being only in Spanish, they have thousands of users around the world, so it is certainly a worldwide reference in free online teaching on librarian science, documentation and information management.

The old Socialbiblio website was made in Wordpress software, so a great job had to be done to get the content imported from the old Wordpress page to the new "Drupal" website. This meant that the site had to be redesign aesthetically and technicall y. In this manner, with the change of website, it was possible to retain all the the publications made up to the date of the publication of the new website, as well as the published comments.

Another important task was the development of tools that would allow content relation, both manually and automatically. For example, in publications related to the same webinar, a block is displayed with all the publications related to this certain webinar (materials, advertisements, chats, etc.). Also, in each of the published materials a block is available with other related materials to the same subject. .

Open source Drupal 7 was used regarding the development of the site. As for the design we developed a unique responsive web graphic design template.
