The Use of Open Source Software in Theological Libraries

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Theological libraries are using more open source software to solve their problems. Examples include CMSs such as Omeka and Drupal, digital signage software like Xibo, and ILS systems like Koha. Recent conference proceedings have highlighted specific uses of tools at specific institutions in specific situations, as well as the potential difficulties of implementing them. This shows that interest exists in the topic. However, there is no real data on the overall landscape, on which tools are popular for specific problems, or on the skill levels that staff need to have in order to use those tools. This paper draws off of a survey of theological libraries and aims to show the current overall state of open source software usage by providing a general picture of the tools that theological libraries are using or have used and what the overall experience with those tools are at institutions of various sizes as well as introducing various tools and the technical skills needed to make full use of them.
