The Cloud Revisted. Tales From The Cloudside

Presenter(s): 
Daniel Nagy, REVIEW

2 Years worth of experience moving a large, complex IT infrastructure into the cloud. What was done and why. What worked and what didn't. The session will touch on running a variety of services in the cloud, backing them up, making then play nice, the cost of it all, and why you can never totally cut the cord on brick and mortar servers. A look forward at what is potentially coming down the pipe for the LII infrastructure and gory stories of what went wrong. If it goes off just after lunch, bring a bucket.

From IA to Implementation: Using Drupal 6 as a foundation for Web, Portal, and Digital Signage

Presenter(s): 
Patricia Ramert, Thomas Jefferson School of Law
James Cooper, Thomas Jefferson School of Law

After choosing Drupal 6 as the Web site CMS, Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL) started the process to overhaul their Web site. Eight months later TJSL launched a dynamic and easy-to-navigate site in addition to a simplified user interface for content maintainers. Using the CMS as single source of data, information is easily distributed to the Web site, student organization sites, digital signage, and student portal. Hear about the process of discovery, mock-ups, research, launch, maintenance, benefits, lessons learned, and the future.

Black Box Full of Drupal

Presenter(s): 
Leslie Grove, University of Georgia Law School
Jason Tubinis, University of Georgia Law School

Most beginner discussions of Drupal start with the premise that you're building a Drupal site from scratch. But what if you're not the one building it? What if you suddenly find yourself in an environment that already has a Drupal site, and now you're responsible for maintaining it? In 2009 the University of Georgia School of Law launched a new Drupal site designed by an outside vendor. In this session we will share tips and tricks for IT professionals who find themselves in any similar situations.

The Afterburner: Modules for optimizing Drupal for fast seo friendly websites

Presenter(s): 
Nick Moline, Justia

Drupal is a tremendous cross between a CMS and a Framework for web development that makes developing a dynamic and robust website in a hurry easy (or easier), but out of the box it leaves much to be desired in terms of performance and content optimization.

In this session we will go over the third party modules and services that can be used to optimize your drupal based site for performance and search engine optimization.

I've uploaded my slides to slideshare:

Using Drupal to Gain Visibility with Annual Georgetown Web Site Survey

Presenter(s): 
Alan Smodic, Florida Coastal School of Law
Nathan DeGruchy, Florida Coastal School of Law

In 2009, law librarians from Yale Law School and the Georgetown University Law Center developed a rubric by which they attempted to identify the best law school home pages based exclusively on objective criteria. Most elements require no special design skills, sophisticated technology or significant expenses. Published by the GREEN BAG ALMANAC AND READER the report, “Top Law School Homepages” has been adopted by Florida Coastal School of Law to benchmark website effectiveness, identify best practices, and determine areas needing improvement on an ongoing basis.

The Online Faculty Scholarship Workshop: A Social In-House Repository for Early (pre-SSRN) Drafts

Presenter(s): 
Tom Boone, Harvard Law School Library

There are limited in-person opportunities for law school faculty to workshop quarter- and half-baked ideas with colleagues. Sites like SSRN provide an electronic option to solicit feedback on drafts, but due to those sites' wide reach, many faculty only post substantially finished work, preferring to keep developing work under wraps from the world at large. To fill the gap, Loyola Law School is developing an in-house repository for article drafts. Faculty can post ideas and drafts electronically, granting access to individually selected colleagues or to the entire faculty.
