Application Software and Project Implementation
This system was implemented by Weiling Liu (University of Louisville.) The site server is sponsored by ITRT (http://kla-itrt.org) and powered by Drupal (version 5.3) (http://drupal.org,) an Open Source module-based content management system (CMS.) In addition to the core modules, some add-on contributed modules are used (see list below.) The theme is customized from Brad Landis’ B7 (http://drupal.org/project/B7.)
