Open Source Software and Librarian Values by Jason Pucket

logo

  • Open source developers and university libraries share the same fundamental goal, which is to share information freely and for the common good: Librarians espouse many of the same ideals that drive the free software community. They collaborate and communicate; they work hard to share the results of their work with one another. They understand freedom and feel that it’s an important value. That more librarians aren’t actively using and evangelizing free software is an indictment against [developers] for not letting [librarians] in on our secret.
