Open Source Integrated Library Systems In Public Libraries,

Open Source Integrated Library Systems In Public Libraries, Tony Brooke
SLIS Student Research Journal
One of the most fundamental decisions a library makes is choosing an integrated library system, or ILS. A public library can remove unwanted outside influence and save money by switching their ILS to free and open source software, or FOSS. This article is an examination of the progress made by FOSS ILSs to become not only contenders against proprietary systems, but also an appropriate choice for financial, functional, and philosophical reasons. Included is a timeline of published evaluations, the milestone of 14% adoption, a summary of the current landscape, and example implementation cases. A functional analysis shows why a public ...

The rapid uptake of social technologies, combined with growing interest in their broader social implications, raises pertinent questions about ...
