Code4Lib Keynote Address

K.G. Schneider's identified those 5 things as issues librarians can address in her Code4Lib conference keynote address. You can find the powerpoint presentation here.

Following a 5-3-1 rule she eventually focuses in on the need for librarians to develop their own software (perhaps not surprisingly at a Code4Lib event) and praises the Evergreen ILS project. Claiming we need to downplay the "opensource" aspect of Evergreen and instead focus on it being good software. It suddenly seems as if discussion of open source ILSs are everywhere and will be interesting to see where all of this leads.
