Since the evolution of information and communication technologies in the past decade, most libraries and librarians have experienced the widespread embracement of Web 2.0 technologies, pervasiveness of mobile devices to the discussion in data management today. It has been always a challenge for librarians to keep up to date with the technologies. But, it never has been a mission impossible for most librarians, who have the passion in building and constructing online information services for the community. True, and not to mention that these are current challenges are also facing similarly by the library vendors (or partners). On the other side, there are online information providers such as Google keeps changing their business model and having a strong financial backup to improve their online services. Amazon is another example too and a possible alternative to the library industry. And today, where do the libraries and librarians stand in the online information services industry. Especially, towards the questions of coping with technologies to improve the online information services model that the management has to keep up to date.

This paper discusses the challenges from the point a young librarian, with the experiences in librarianship, as a vendor and also an entrepreneur who builds information portal for the communities. In addition, this paper will also shares the some frameworks that are been taught in libraries and library schools, which have adopted to meet the needs of its users and its clientele, as well as employers of library school graduates. It is through the “awareness-knowledge-experimentation-immersion” educational paradigm, which guided these successful librarians to step out their comfort zone into the competitive industry. They learned to cope with the technology knowledge progressively and the economics of the industry. It does not matter if the knowledge is from an open source, proprietary environment, outsourced or in-house system. They have learnt to build a versatile, scalable library, especially as an online information service for the community to adopt, embrace, engage and utilise. And, with these pointers that will be discussed in this paper, will help some of the future librarians to grow.

  10. 10. The Challenge of Open Source Adoption The Free Software Foundation defines that: “… the term “open source” software is used to mean more or less the same category as free software. But, it is not the same class of software, where they accept some licenses that consider too restrictive, and there are free software licenses they have not accepted. However, the differences in extension of the category are small: nearly all free software is open source, and nearly all open source software is free.”
  11. 11. The Benefits • Software does not depend on any specific hardware or operating system platform to function. • With OSS, people can have any number of copies of programs on their machines, at home or at work. • Since source code is available one can customise the software as per the requirements. • It is possible to incorporate the software into another program to perform new functions. • If the user base of open source is large, it can sustain in the market for long time. • Since developers working for open source are spread across the world its development does not depend on any single person/community. Hence, new release versions can frequently be made available to the community. • There is large community of people who work on popular open source hence regularly new versions of the OSS are available to the community. • There is a group of community who can provide support through mailing lists, internet relay chat centers to get quick answer to any of problem/query. • Since it is open source, there is no data loss as well as with open standards/formats, hence it is easy to retrieve data for future.
  12. 12. TheDrawbacksofUsingOpenSourceSoftware • Lack of formal support and training that a commercial software package offers. • Often software support is provided only through mailing lists and discussion forums. • Installing and maintaining OSS generally requires a technical knowledge than that required for commercial software. • OSS are also not known for ease of use as the focus is usually on functionality

  18. 18. Conclusion • Adopting, developing and implementing an application, especially open source software, needs a high learning curve. • With a basic framework that is share or best practices, this will able to guide and allow you to cope with the technology strategically align to your business needs.
