We needed a solution that would provide a centralized place for IT committees to post meeting minutes, events, surveys, and the like, and to collaborate on documents. We also needed a place where the campus community could easily find IT services and resources. Two critical requirements were (1) the ability to have granular access control to content, and (2) providing the ability for non-Web-savvy individuals to create content. Our solution was a Drupal website (https://it.ucsb.edu) supplemented with the Organic Groups module. We'll demonstrate our Drupal configuration and discuss the tradeoffs we made to achieve our desired functionality. We'll discuss how the site is used today, and our future plans.
