The Drupal Environmental Information Management System (DEIMS) (San Gil
et al, 2010) group is building an information management system based on
the open source Drupal Content Management System.  Drupal is used for
managing information, from the database backbone to the dynamic website
portal look and feel. DEIMS consists of a user-friendly metadata editor
coupled with the functionality to easily construct tools for data
discovery, display and download.  Importantly, a module has been
developed that generates EML from the metadata entered in to DEIMS. 
DEIMS provides a solution that sites can adopt for managing their data
and metadata in order to deliver high-quality PASTA-ready EML to the
NIS.
