So, whether on your own or through a service provider you've decided to use an open source package to meet an automation need in your organization. You paid nothing for the right to run the software (although you may be paying a service provider for their support of the software), so you have no obligation to the software itself, right? Arguably not. Healthy open source software is supported by a community of users, and the other participants in the open source project are counting on your support -- financial and talent -- to keep the project growing. In 2014, experienced leaders from libraries, archives, and museums met to learn from each other what it takes for open source to be successful -- both for the adopting organization and the open source project. This session summarizes those discussion and provides a forum for LibTech attendees to share their own experiences and ask their own questions.
