DSpace (URL) and Greenstone (URL) are the two leading digital library software applications. While these applications are wildly adopted they are not flexible enough to provide more robust interactivity. In this paper I present the findings from an assessment and initial adaptation of Drupal, an open source content management system for the purposes of serving as a digital library. Digital library discourse has recently begun to explore and encourage social interaction and the need to engage library patrons. I have design and developed a fully functional high-fidelity prototype open source community artifact narrative-driven digital library; CANDDiL. This report presents the current state of CANDDiL and its potential for advancing digital library research.
