Content Management Systems (CMS) don’t belong solely to the library field, but they’re welcomed, because they come with an acronym, and librarianship is the most acronym-happy profession I know. (Then again, I have never worked for the government.)
Obviously I have been using WordPress (which is a CMS) for some time now, having switched over from Blogger back in November 2009. However, I thought I would take the opportunity to learn about other content management systems – Drupal, Joomla, etc. – some of their pros and cons, strengths and weaknesses, and what they might be good for. The workshop today in the GSLIS Tech Lab was a good start, and it convinced me to register for next week’s mini-conference, sponsored by the New England chapter of ASIS&T and co-sponsored by the Simmons student chapter (of which I am a member).
