I would like to recommend to you what I suggest to every librarian working
with a Drupal site:
1) Join the drupal4lib mailing list <
2) Join the Libraries Drupal group <https://groups.drupal.org/libraries>.
The mailing list is a great place to get questions answered and compare
notes, while the group is the most frequently used source for discovering
who is using Drupal and what library specific modules exist.
