  1. Introduction of participants

  4. Survey of libraries regarding open source products
  5. Other project or program ideas?

Notes regarding ALA program for 2015 from ALA midwinter meeting: Consensus is that a panel on administrative concerns (e.g., cost models, the sorts of staffing that are truly required to run OSS, effective community involvement) would be a goodidea for a program. Advocacy has moved on -- it's more rare to have to answer the question "what IS open source" -- but is still needed to reach many library directors and/or IT departments concerned aboutlong-term sustainability and costing. - See more at: http://connect.ala.org/node/225713#sthash.8vPED603.dpuf
