OPEN-SIG Meeting

We invite our METRO colleagues to the inaugural meeting of the OPEN-SIG. This first meeting will be a general discussion of the OPEN resources/tools that we use or would like to know more about, and a brainstorming for future discussions/topics, and for sharing those “hidden gem” resources that “everyone should know about” but not enough people do know about.

Our SIG's mission: Libraries are often the only place that patrons can get access to important proprietary software and resources; however, life-long information and technology literacy entails being able to apply “library-acquired skills” across work, home, educational, recreational, and civic environments, within ever-changing budget constraints. This SIG welcomes all librarians and information professionals who would like to find/use/share Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) and Open Access (OA) resources, and who are interested in promoting an “open“ resource ecology.

 
All METRO's special interest group meetings are free of charge for METRO members and non-members alike. Walk-ins are welcome.
