CS-SIS Program: Hot Topic: Libraries Developing Openly

Engard, Director of Open Source Education at ByWater Solutions and author of Practical Open Source Software for Libraries, will explain how libraries can get involved in open source development and take advantage of the power of applications that have been developed by active communities.
