NELINET (soon to be LYRASIS) IT Conference – Open Source in Your Library

Don’t miss the NELINET (soon to be LYRASIS) IT Conference

Open Source in Your Library
October 9th, 2009 – Olin College, Needham, MA

Hello All!

I am so excited to be joining the library community at such a pivotal time in the history of library technology management. As an early adopter of open source solutions, I sometimes take for granted the great advantages of sharing knowledge resources. Now, being at the junction of two worlds of information science – both as it relates to computer science and to library science, my role as Open Source Guy is a dream come true.

Dare to dream…

  • What if you could have a truly cost-effective, scalable, customizable ILS solution that takes advantage of the cooperative power of open source?
  • What if you could get total control of your website content and engage your patrons interactively?

This year’s NELINET/LYRASIS IT Conference will provide fantastic insights on open source solutions for libraries and provide clarity to some “what ifs?”. Featured are Joe Lucia who led the development of VuFind, Dan Scott, the Evergreen guru, and Karen Coombs who will talk about all things Drupal.

I know I am biased, but whether you are a geek like me or a library director looking to get a broad knowledge of open source solutions, this conference covers all the bases.

Cost for the program for Unlimited Members is $85. To register, visit:

I hope you will join me there!
