I am in the process of creating YAOSS4LL (Yet Another Open Source Software For Libraries List), and I'm hoping to garner the expertise of our communities.
More specifically, I would like to create a (more or less) comprehensive list of library-related open source software in the following areas:
* content management systems (CMS)
* "discovery systems"
* electronic resource management (ERM)
* institutional repositories (IR)
* integrated library systems (ILS)
* resource sharing/interlibrary loan (ILL)
Unfortunately, I am being challenged when it comes to ERMs and resource sharing/ILL applications. The other areas seem well-developed. You can see what I've done so far at the following (temporary) link:
Do you have any suggestions or additions? Is your (favorite) library-related OSS application missing from my list?

Thank you for the suggestions both on and off list. With your help I was able to increase my list of viable OSS projects by just less than twenty items. The 'Net really works. If you have other suggestions, then please don't hesitate to pass them along.
