New Library Technology Paradigms: OS vs Black Box vs Hybrids

When: 
Saturday, June 23, 2012
1:30 pm to 3:30 pm

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Some libraries build new Open Source Products, some adopt existing ones and others buy packaged products. How do libraries make the choice? What are the trade-offs, benefits and pitfalls of building something in house, using an existing OS solution, buying something out of the box or building a hybrid solution. Our panelists will talk about how and why they build systems and what drives their decision making processes.
