FOSS4LIB – Just 2 Weeks Old and Gaining Momentum

From Lyrasis semi-monthly Newsletter, Feb 7

“Two weeks ago, LYRASIS announced the launch of FOSS4LIB (Free/Open Source Software for Libraries), a website dedicated to providing guidance about open source software for the library community. FOSS4LIB was designed with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to offer a set of Decision Support Tools for the library community to assess open source readiness and related decisions.

Since its launch, FOSS4LIB has received more than 3,000 web page visits and has nearly 100 users and newly registered packages and providers. The more active members in the FOSS4LIB community, the more successful this tool will be for everyone. To learn more about FOSS4LIB, join Peter Murray for a FREE webinar on Friday, February 10 from 3 – 4 p.m. ET. Email Peter Murray to register.

FOSS4LIB is supported by LYRASIS Technology Services (LTS), which strives to help libraries leverage technology with both individual and group solutions. Open source solutions are a major focus area for LTS, and we offer extensive open source support including needs assessment, hosting and maintenance.
