Community Librarianship and Free/Open Source Technology
Presented at the Massachusetts Library Association Confererence, Friday May 4, 2007 11am-12:15pm.
Radical Reference has been providing library services to political activists and independent journalists since July 2004. They help people online, in the street, in the classroom and on the exhibit floor. Their technology based services are delivered using Free/Open Source tools and yours can be, too. Learn about Radical Reference and how you can use their model to deliver services in your own communities.
