IALA Drupal by Mind Map: IALA Drupal

1. Roadmap

1.1. Alpha

1.1.1. Simple installation for creating initial awareness that IALA even exists. Visually appealing - lots of general photos of people, good photos of libraries and photos of projects that will fall under IALA's umbrella (cyc4lib, sing4balt..). Informative - as much information as possible on IALA, it's projects and the ideologies IALA supports. Possibility to join the association Very simple webform in Alpha

1.1.2. Drupal modules

1.1.3. Due: 31st January 2014

1.1.4. Requirements for this to happen: Graphical design to be done by... I am fairly good at user interface design, but lack an artistic overview. Meaning I can not produce original visual work, but I can comment constructively on existing work. The alpha can be done with an existing template, model or theme, what ever naming convention you wish to use. this frees us from the need of graphical design work, but risks the site looking very generic. Written content What is IALA (nutshell) What do we stand for What's first / what's next Rules of the association How to join How can you help Project descriptions and photos Photobank that has photos donated specifically for IALA allpurpose use. Either the photographer gives copyrights to IALA or licenses under Creative Commons.

4. What is this mindmap?

4.1. This mindmap is a support document for the development of the IALA web presence. The Drupal installation will not only be a webpage for IALA information, but a gateway to IALA activity and a tool for IALA members. There are so many different approaches to this and so many facets of the upcoming Drupal-page that we need a quick document to gather everything up front. This means this mindmap will portray some things that one might not conventionally associate with a simple webpage. Sincerely, Roberto 'Robi' Corsini
