    SLA Princeton-Trenton chapter presents a webinar: "Practical Open
    Source Software for Libraries" by Nicole Engard

    Friday, March 1, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

The library community is abuzz about open source software (OSS). What 
will it mean to our libraries? Would it help if you knew that it is not 
just about programming, but a philosophy? This class will give you the 
facts about OSS by not only introducing you to what OSS is and what it 
means for libraries, but also by providing attendees with a toolbox of 
OSS products to use in their libraries.

Nicole C. Engard is the Vice President of Education at ByWater 
Solutions. Her primary role at ByWater Solutions is to educate 
librarians about open source software with a focus on the Koha ILS. In 
addition to her daily responsibilities, Nicole keeps the library 
community up to date on web technologies via her website "What I Learned 
Today..." (www.web2learning.net <http://www.web2learning.net>) and 
volunteers as a community moderator on opensource.com 
<http://opensource.com>. In 2007, Nicole was named one of Library 
Journal's Movers & Shakers and in 2009 she was the editor of "Library 
Mashups," a book published by Information Today, Inc. and in 2010 she 
authored "Practical Open Source Software for Libraries," a book 
published by Chandos Inc. and in 2012 the second edition of "The 
Accidental Systems Librarian" which she worked on with Rachel Singer 
Gordon was released.
