<h2><small>SLA Princeton-Trenton chapter presents a webinar:
"Practical Open Source Software for Libraries" by Nicole Engard</small><br>
<h2>Friday, March 1, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST</h2>
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. <br>
