Abstract:
In his opening plenary address to the Open Repositories Conference, James Hilton made the statement that "open-source software is free like a puppy." This statement succinctly summarizes the need for institutions that benefit from freely available software to get involved in its ongoing development, that an investment of resources is always required. Anyone who has worked with information technology in libraries, museums and archives knows that compared with the total cost of buying vendor software and making it actually do the desired job, there can be a great deal of room to save money while making a significant investment of resources in the process.
