Dan Chudnov writes \"The Open Source Systems for Libraries (oss4lib) site has a new home at www.oss4lib.org.
oss4lib was started by librarians at the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at Yale University in February 1999; within a year over 30 projects have been listed there. The new site is hosted by sourceforge.net and not a minute too soon: this article in Linux Journal, while mixing its issues rather significantly, points to oss4lib amongst many ongoing initiatives to move education toward open computing. \"
If you\'re not familiar with open sorce projects you should look into them, you\'re looking at one now. Be sure to check out OSS4lib for great software.
