Yesterday I attended a Free and Open Source Software for Librarians program by Scott Dexter and Samir Chopra, based on their book Decoding Liberation: The Promise of Free and Open Source Software. Before you read my report back, you should know that the content is familiar territory to me. My spouse, Eric Goldhagen, gives a similar talk in his half of our "Radical Reference: Community Librarianship and Free/Open Source Technology" (and other talks) road show.

Here's a little report back from the Google and Libraries conference I attended on Monday. The conference was organized to be part of ILIAC (International Library Information and Analytical Center)'s Tenth International Workshop: "Digital Resources and International Information Exchange: East-West." It was held at Columbia University on Monday, March 10, 2008.
Durr...In my post about spring conferences I forgot two, both of which I'm more or pretty much less helping to plan and execute.
