◾Training the Next Generation of Open Source Developers: A Case Study of the OSU Libraries & Press’ Technology Training Program by Evviva Weinraub Lajoie, Trey Terrell, and Mike Eaton.


And finally, for those interested in how things just work, we have two articles:

As always – the Editorial Committee thanks our authors, submitters, and community for continuing to support and provide the Journal with timely and exceptional content.  We hope to see you all in Portland for the Annual Conference.
