Open Source and Libraries

  • Libraries have a long history of dealing with licensed content

  • Natural synergy with open source movement library collections, staff and physical structures usually are available to a wide community of users on a nonprofit, publicly funded basis

  • Libraries are frequent users of open source software though may be unaware of this

    • Internet infrastructure is built on OSS applications but this is ubiquitous and often taken for granted (examples: BIND software that runs DNS server, Apache, Linux, Mozilla)
