Wheke: Drupal for libraries

Who am I ?

Wheke is a Drupal 7 distribution with modules preconfigured for helping libraries to build their website. It contains an installation profile which will give availability to choose customisations. Today, it is based on standard profile, it activates modules and install a default theme.

You want to know more ? Have a look to wheke website.


First, we provided our first module called opac. The opac module enables libraries to integrate their catalog into Drupal allowing importing records, make advanced searches with faceted results, circulation task etc ... This module is intended to work with any ILS by using connectors. Everyone can make its own by creating a php file. We are working too with pazpar2 for federated search with mkdru and plan to develop an ERM soon.


You can join the project ! Give us feedback, fill issues, ask questions, welcome !
