    ATLANTA – (January 18, 2012) – LYRASIS is pleased to announce the
    launch of FOSS4LIB (Free/Open Source Software for Libraries), a
    website dedicated to providing guidance about open source software
    for the library community.

    With funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, LYRASIS
    Technology Services is leveraging the expertise of its open source
    development team and consulting staff to help librarians and
    technologists navigate through the planning, decision-making and
    implementation processes associated with open source. “Open source
    software enables libraries to improve their services in
    cost-effective ways. Through the FOSS4LIB website, library
    professionals will be able to more effectively assess and meet the
    needs of their staff and users through open source,” said Kate
    Nevins, Executive Director of LYRASIS.

    FOSS4LIB offers a set of Decision Support Tools for the library
    community to assess open source readiness and related decisions. The
    tools include:

            • a self-paced survey to determine the best open source
    hosting option;
            • a list of questions that helps libraries understand open
    source software requirements and how to integrate with their larger
    institutional technology environments;
            • a list of factors that impact the true cost of
    implementing open source; and
            • a document to guide the final software package selection.

    The site also details current information about open source software
    service providers, events and usage. Through its open source
    software registry, FOSS4LIB enables providers to highlight their
    software packages and benefits, libraries to submit firsthand
    experience with open source software, and users to learn about open
    source software updates and releases.

    FOSS4LIB is accessible at http://foss4lib.org/. Software package
    creators, service providers and library professionals are encouraged
    to add their contact information to the registry. LYRASIS is
    providing additional information about this free online resource via
    free webinars and online classes, and will present overviews at the
    ALA Midwinter Conference.

            • January 21st from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM (CST), City Center
    Marriott Somerset Room
            • January 22nd from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM (CST), City Center
    Marriott Bordeaux Room
