Eric Lease Morgan has created This Site is a part of a hands-on workshop for teaching people in libraries about open source software.
Given the linked texts, the accompanying set of software, and reasonable access to a (Unix) computer, the student should be able to read the essays, work through the exercises, and become familiar with open source software especially as it pertains to libraries. More specifically, the student will learn the ideas behind open source software, a bit of its history, and how it is similar and dissimilar to librarianship.
