Open Source and Free Systems/Software: Implications for Libraries 

Monday, December 6, 1999 
Yale University, Luce Hall Auditorium 
9:15 a.m.­ 4:30 p.m.

The idea behind a free approach to software development not bound by source
code patents nor by intellectual property rights is twenty-plus years strong.
Newly inspired by the web's progressive, yet often challenged, openly free
environment, open and free source software products have already made inroads
into the library market. As the philosophy of this movement and the principles
of free information within libraries are a nearly perfect match, interest and
applicability are increasing. Join us in a discussion of these ideas and of
their validity in libraries.
