MLC Annual Meeting Highlights Open Source Software for Libraries

Daniel Chudnov, Information Technology Specialist in the Office of Strategic Initiatives at the Library of Congress, will be the keynote speaker at MLC’s 2008 Annual Meeting, “Open Source, Open Libraries,” on Friday, October 3, 2008, in Lansing.  To register online for the program, go to MLC’s Workshop Registration page.

We’re excited about Mr. Chudnov keynoting our “Open Source, Open Libraries” program.  Among his many accomplishments, he started the oss4lib weblog and listserv in 1999 to promote open source software in libraries.

In addition to Mr. Chudnov, we have an impressive line-up of Michigan library staff talking about their successes using open source software.  Steve Sowder and Terry Robertson of Andrews University will present on their experiences with open source Eprints for their university’s digital repository.  John Rucker, Bill Ott, and Mark Szidik will highlight a few of their open source favorites for libraries.
