Working with Open Source Software: A Hands-On Pre-Conference<>

<>  

 If you are a systems librarian or systems support staff at a library, 
this is the pre-conference for you. Get hands-on training from experts 
on a variety of Open Source Tools that you can use at your home 
institution! Open source software is software that you can freely 
acquire and implement at your library - but only if you have the 
technical knowledge to do so. This pre-conference provides the 
opportunity to acquire that technical knowledge. Held at <><> Emory<> 
University , this pre-conference is actually a hands-on workshop - 
attendees will get the opportunity to work with different software 
tools, and learn how to install, administer, and customize the tools 
during the pre-conference. Among the tools being presented:<>

<>  

 *    OCLC's SiteSearch Software, which will be free for library's to 
download and use <>

<>  

 *    MyLibrary , a library web portal <>

<>  

 *    Citation Manager, a web-based citation database <>

<>  

 *    WIBS (Windsor Internet Booking System), a web-based computer 
station booking system that can integrate with your ILS <>

<>  

 *    Open Archives Initiative (OAI) tools and services <>

<>  

 *    MARC.pm , a perl module for manipulating MARC records <>

<>  

 *    Jake, a reference tool which makes finding, managing, and linking 
online journals and journal articles easier for students, researchers, 
and librarians <>

<>  

 *    PEARS, a text storage and indexing system from OCLC's office of 
research <>

<>  

 This workshop provides a strong value in training and hands-on 
experience. Please visit the LITA website at
