English abstract

Are you hearing more and more about open source? Are you wondering how it might benefit your library? From basic desktop applications to fully-featured integrated library systems, open source is becoming a serious option that all libraries must consider as part of any software procurement process. Get an overview of open source software, discuss how it differs from proprietary software, and examine its use in libraries. You will come away with options you can implement immediately (well, at work on Monday), as well as ideas to consider in long-term systems planning.
