This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

This documentation refers to an earlier version of Islandora. https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/ISLANDORA/Start is current.

Overview

The Libraries API module is a Drupal plugin that connects other Drupal modules to a repository of user-defined libraries that can be downloaded and installed into a folder located at sites/all/libraries or sites/name.of.site/libraries. It allows Drupal modules to draw on files that are not necessarily Drupal modules themselves.

Provisions

Downloads

The Libraries API module can be found on their project page on the Drupal site, at http://drupal.org/project/libraries.

Usage

Any module that requires the Libraries API as a dependency will also require a 'libraries' folder to be created in the same part of the Drupal directory structure as the Libraries module is found, and a dependent library to be placed in that folder. For example, if the folder containing the Libraries module is found at path.to.drupal/sites/all/modules/libraries, then you will need to create a folder called path.to.drupal/sites/all/libraries, and place any dependent libraries in there.

Please check the Libraries module's page on drupal.org for more information.
