Libraries are big consumers and producers of information – and many pieces in the tool set libraries use and subscribe to are ‘leased’ from large for-profit companies for years. There is, however, a growing number of options libraries can pick from the realm of open-source/free that accomplish what a library requires. This session highlights some of our technologies - with a focus on open-source/free. The intent is to talk about what they do, challenges in adoption, and what else might be available. The panel will feature 3 examples and will include some Q & A time to open the conversation to other ideas:
Hilary Hardcastle of UC Hastings Law Library will talk about their implementation of TRELLO.
Edward Hart of UNT Dallas Law Library will talk about their KOHA ILS
Alba Holgado and Shay Elbaum of Stanford Law Library will talk about their proof of concept of OJS (an open-source scholarly publishing platform).
Jesse A Lambertson of D’Angelo Law Library (UChicago) will moderate.
