Abstract

Briggs library, in collaboration with Information Technology, created a semi-automated “New Arrivals” page in Drupal. Leveraging student worker project time and existing Google Scripts framework, the project spanned the 2017-18 school year with a functional page launching in April 2018. The multi-step process uses google scripts, google sheets and multiple APIs to gather book data and publish to a Drupal page. This project solved our challenge of publishing a selected list of books to the library website. This session will highlight the workflow from book barcode to the website, focusing heavily on the Alma API connections in the process.
