OPEN-SIG Description: Libraries are often the only place that patrons can get access to important proprietary software and resources; however, life-long information and technology literacy entails being able to apply “library-acquired skills” across work, home, educational, recreational, and civic environments, within ever-changing budget constraints. This SIG welcomes all librarians and information professionals who would like to find/use/share Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) and Open Access (OA) resources, and who are interested in promoting an “open“ resource ecology.

(Note: The OPEN SIG grew out of the Lib 2.0 (2008-2011) and DigitalHumanities+ SIG; Lib2.0 archives are hosted on the last tab)
