I'm writing a brief paper for my Systems Analysis class on the use of ope=
source software in libraries; I believe that I will be emphasizing the
value of open standards and open formats for data transfer, as well as th=
community-driven nature of open-source software and how that benefits
If anyone has any suggestions for resources to check out (in addition to
http://www.oss4lib.org/readings) I would greatly appreciate it. I've already go=
_The Cathedral and the Bazaar_ on my list, but I'd appreciate any other
general resources that anyone could recommend.

"I really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous
group. They are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the
desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man.
I wouldn't mess with them."
