A

Why

Drupal


At the time of project planning, the library already
had some experience with Drupal.



Drupal:


Is extensible

hundreds of modules.


Had solid performance.


Is supported by the community (IRC, online docs, forums)
and commercially (books, paid services)


Is used in libraries.


Free and Open

Results

so
far


Traffic from search engines


In August, 94% of total traffic was from search engines and from cities
other than Monterrey (91%).


Average visit times and pages viewed from users in Monterrey are
much higher (3:37 and 4.66 pages/visit) versus the average (1:06 and
1.94 pages/visit).


Item records in google.com.mx are high for some items, which appear
in second or third places

ranking above bookstore results.



At least one academic department is closely following our
implementation.
