Working with Open Source Software: A Hands-On Pre-Conference
If you are a systems librarian or systems
support staff at a library, this is the pre-conference for you. Get hands-on
training from experts on a variety of Open Source Tools that you can use at
your home institution! Open source software is software that you can freely
acquire and implement at your library - but only if you have the technical
knowledge to do so. This pre-conference provides the opportunity to acquire
that technical knowledge. Held at
* OCLC's SiteSearch Software, which will be free for library's to download and use
* MyLibrary, a library web portal
* Citation Manager, a web-based citation database
* WIBS (Windsor Internet Booking System), a web-based computer station booking system that can integrate with your ILS
* Open Archives Initiative (OAI) tools and services
* MARC.pm, a perl module for manipulating MARC records
* Jake, a reference tool which makes finding, managing, and linking online journals and journal articles easier for students, researchers, and librarians
* PEARS, a text storage and indexing system from OCLC's office of research
This workshop provides a strong value in training and hands-on experience. Please visit the LITA website at http://www.lita.org/ac2002/opensource.html for more information on the pre-conference and how to sign up.
Note: Because of the nature of this pre-conference, familiarity and experience with the Linux operating system is a pre-requisite.
