Nicole will begin her talk entitled Open Your Mind: Open Source and Libraries with an introduction to open source and why it’s a great option for libraries and archives. Additionally, she will speak about her own experiences with open source and the importance of going into the community to increase awareness of open source offerings for libraries.
