This Collaboration, Open Source, and Innovation (COSI) web site for Historical Research, Education, Military History, and Information Technology provides selected links to innovative 'open source' software tools and 'open access' Internet sites containing historical information and knowledge that may be of interest to the larger community of historians, history enthusiasts, researchers, and students.
Collaborative development efforts to create innovative, open source software tools and applications for research and education are well underway around the world. These innovative 'open' solutions are being released under one or more open source license arrangements that allow public and private institutions to acquire and use these tools at little or no cost. This has tremendous potential benefits for individuals and organizations that face funding challenges.
