Duke University West Campus

Early in 2013, Trinity Technology Services announced the adoption of the Drupal content management system (CMS) software as our preferred platform, and began migration of our existing Apostrophe-based sites to Drupal. Since that time, we have completed our migration and continued building new sites. This decision was based on Drupal's many advantages, such as offering a robust and flexible development framework, a user-friendly editing interface for content updates, a dynamic and worldwide community of active, engaged and welcoming developers, designers and contend strategists, as well as the fact that Duke at large had selected Drupal to be the dominant platform for site development.

In May 2019, we announced our project to migrate the websites we support to a newer version of Drupal, and are currently on version 9.

To help further assist our Drupal efforts at Duke, we are sharing our modules and knowledge with the greater Duke and Drupal communities. These pages will provide information we hope you will find useful, whether you're a developer, designer, editor, or however you participate within the Drupal ecosystem at Duke.

Interested in learning more?

If you're interested in developing your Drupal skills, LinkedIn Learning has a number of Drupal-specific training courses. See the Office of Information Technology's website for information on how to take advantage of these online tutorials.

There is also a Drupal @ Duke community here, in which the TTS actively participates, on a roughly monthly basis. We encourage you to join us on our mailing list.

Why Drupal?

Disclaimer

If you are external to Duke and have stumbled across this site because you use Drupal at your institution or work place, please note that the how-tos and documentation you will find here are specific to the way Trinity College of Arts & Sciences uses the popular content management system. As such, much of what you find here will likely have little relevance to your own Drupal implementation and website(s).
