Access and services that libraries provide is often limited by the software 
and services that they are able to purchase.  But an
alternative--freely-available open source software--is available to help
libraries improve and shape services and better meet users' needs. But how
can librarians get involved in development of these products and contribute
to the process?  This program features open source developers discussing
their projects:  Larry Wall and PERL, Eric Lease Morgan and
MyLibrary at NCState, and Willem Schulton with projects in rural public
