Description: What administrator doesn't like more control - over budgets, service and the future of their library? Open source software can deliver all that, controlling cost and funding improvements that will make a difference for your users, while safeguarding investments in automation and providing a more stable future. A panel will present the administrators' view, how and why they decided to adopt it, and how using open source systems has changed their libraries for the better.
