Open Source in Michigan Libraries

In preparation for MLC’s special program “Open Source, Open Libraries,” we polled the lists a couple months ago asking for information on open source software currently in use in Michigan libraries.  The list of the responses is now compiled on the Open Source page on the Michigan Libraries Wiki at: Please feel free to add your library’s open source information to the list!

We have a great line-up for the “Open Source, Open Libraries” program, including keynote speaker Daniel Chudnov from the Library of Congress.

In addition to our keynote, members of the Michigan library community will highlight some of their favorite open source applications:
Terry Robertson and Steve Sowder, Andrews University, on Eprints, open source software for institutional repositories.
John Rucker, Branch District Library, on Dansguardian, open source filtering software
Mark Szidik, Michigan Library Consortium, on Mozilla Firefox and GiMP.
Bill Ott, Grand Rapids Public Library, on Open Office applications.
