Libraries are continually faced with the challenge of making the most of their budgets while progressively increasing efficiency and library services.  Learn about the benefits of many different types of free software and open source applications to improve your internal operations, market library services, and encourage staff collaboration.  Find out what types of free applications are available for electronic resources management (ERM), private intranets, reference statistics tracking, email management and more in this informative session.
