Open source usually refers to an application whose source code is made available for use or modification as users see fit. This means libraries gain more flexibility and freedom than software purchased with license restrictions. Both the open source community and the library world live by the same rules and principles. This book explains the facts and dispels myths about open source. The chapters introduce librarians to what open source is and what it means for libraries and provide readers with links to a toolbox full of freely available open source products to use in their libraries.
