If you are interested in what Open Source software solutions are available to libraries, how they work, and the issues and strategies around their use, then this free event in Edinburgh on the 25th and 26th January may be of interest.

‘Open Edge’ is a two day event on open source software for libraries being run in collaboration with JISC and SCONUL. The first day is ’Haggis and Mash’, is a ‘Mashed Library event’ and will take a very hands-on approach, while the second day covers broader issues, in particular how capacity might be built to enable open source solutions to flourish in HE and FE Libraries.

You can attend one or both days – full details of the programme are available at http://www.mashedlibrary.com/wiki/index.php?title=Haggis_and_Mash and registration is now open at http://www.nesc.ac.uk/esi/events/1114/
