Join LITA's Open Source Systems Interest Group for its program,
Practical Solutions for Libraries: Open Source Software
Learn how and why libraries are thinking outside the box and developing their own services from within, using the Open Source model. Libraries are primed not only to use Open Source to their advantage in the future, but are currently using it to enhance Reference services and Reserves services. This program will present current projects using Open Source software in libraries: OSCR (Open Source Course Reserves), Jake (Jointly Administered Knowledge Environment), and Avanti, an evolving Open Source Integrated Library System. The program will conclude with a broad view of Open Source by Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly & Associates. See what Open Source software can do for your library and why it is of importance to the profession.
[Wow, the OSSIG really outdid itself, getting Tim O'Reilly to join us. This should be a fantastic event... hope to see you there. :P]
