CFP: Open Source Software and Tools for the Library and Archive (Online conference - September 17, 2015)

Have you made the move to integrate open source software? If so, we want to hear about it and share it with others!

Amigos Library Services is looking for presenters for our upcoming September conference, "Open Source Software and Tools for the Library and Archive." We are looking for success stories concerning open source software or tools used in a recent or current project.

We encourage a wide variety of projects (content or institutional repositories, integrated library systems, public-facing websites, etc.) that have utilized open source tools. Examples could include Omeka, WordPress, Koha, Audacity, Drupal, Archivists’ Toolkit, Ushahidi, or self-created or modified software.

If you can speak on one of these topics or have another idea in mind, please submit your proposal by July 13. Don't worry if you've never presented online. It’s easy, and we are happy to train you and provide technical support during your presentation.

For more information about this conference, contact Carmen Cowick, cowick@amigos.org  or 800-843-8482, ext. 2844.
