-Focusing mostly on the open source LMS/ILS, this [[http://​galecia.com/​content/​open-source-library-software/​detailed|backgrounder]] from Lori Ayre ([[http://​galecia.com|The Galecia Group]]) describes some of the benefits of libraries going to an Open Source ILS and explains some of the differences when it comes to licenses, purchasing services, development/​enhancements and maintenance of the system.
