Freedom in the library: Convincing your boss that sharing is good

A session at KohaCon 2010

Tuesday 26th October, 2010

11:30am to 12:15pm (NZMT)

This presentation will show how the concepts of sharing, freedom and public domain are embodied by the FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) community. After describing what is meant by FOSS, we will look at how fairness is promoted through the choice of copyright licenses. Then we will examine the benefits of this freedom and of the related communities (for example, Creative Commons) it has inspired. Nobody should ever get fired for putting FOSS in their library!
