I'm looking at adding a (open source) CMS to manage the Tarver Library web pages - the most likely candidates are drupal and joomla. I've just installed joomla on a development machine so that I can tinker with it.

I'd be interested in hearing if anyone has any experience with either of these programs.

Can't say enough about Joomla! I not only used it to create our new Web 2.0 Staff Intranet but we use it for our Choose Civility (http://www.choosecivility.org/) site as well as our PCs4Kids (http://www.pcs4kids.com/) site.

Good Luck Bob and let me know what you decide.

Bob, there were some flurries of discussion about Drupal and Joomla on this network a couple of months back, so you might try the search box to locate some of the earlier postings, which should lead you to some of the Library2.0 folks who are actively using them.

I've only dabbled briefly with both and found Joomla to be a lot easier in terms of the initial learning curve, but people have put together some amazing sites using Drupal, so it's clearly a strong contender.
