What is open source?
- The Open Source Initiative (a California based non-profit) has a ten point definition of what open source software is.
- ByWater's FAQ includes a good answer to "What is Open-Source or Free-Software (FLOSS)?"
- Evergreen also has a helpful FAQ on Open Source
- Nicole Engard--who is a fabulous presenter in my opinion--is doing a couple of free webinars (in the next few weeks) on Open Source in Libraries: Freedom and Community, if the concept is new to you, this would be a great opportunity to get an idea of the ideas behind open source.
