Abstract: This session was about libraries and archives embracing open source software for digital preservation as demonstrated by large institutions such as MIT, Harvard, and The National Archives of the UK, to name a few. These organizations have developed and distributed open source tools for digital preservation ranging from format identification tools to repository software. The development of open source records management software by contrast has been slow to develop. This presentation discussed the reasons for this dichotomy through a discussion of the ongoing work of the InterPARES 3 general study – Open Source Records Management Software and reports on an early evaluation of the first open source records management software. This session took place on October 19, 2010 in the Lillooet Room of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at the University of British Columbia.
