PALINET & LibLime

Hopefully this will make Open Source a more viable option for libraries who have been holding off: PALINET is aware that not all of our members have the technical support or skills necessary to install or test the open source applications that are currently available. We're looking at a number of ways to address this issue, but we've taken two initial steps already. First, a member Technology Caucus has begun  [ Read More ]

I’m the co-editor of the Drexel Student Chapter of the SLA (DUSLA) and I have just finished the Winter 2007 Newsletter – read it in PDF format via the DUSLA website.
