  1. 1. 1 Total Library Solution (TLS)Free and Open Source Model for Resource Sharing By: Ata ur Rehman ata.rehman@gmail.com
  2. 2. 2Contents• Free and Open Source Software• Total Library Solution• Resource Sharing ▫ What ▫ Why ▫ How▫ RS Model▫ Q&A
  3. 3. 3Free and Open Source Software (Cont..)• Types of Software – Commercial / Proprietary Software • For Profit • Commercial License • Closed Source • Upgradataion – Require Fee • Can not be re- distributed • Can not be modified • Easy to install /use • Examples: Windows, MS Office, Oracle
  4. 4. 4Free and Open Source Software (Cont)• Types of Software (Cont.) – Free and Open Source Software • For community by community • Free (Both as Free of Cost, Freedom) • Open / Public License • Source Code - Open • Liberty of Modification • Can be re-distributed • Difficult to install / configure
  5. 5. 5 Free and Open Source Software (Cont...)Free Software Foundation http://www.fsf.org/ “Free software is software that gives you the freedom to share, study and modify it. We call this free software because the user is free”
  6. 6. 6 Free and Open Source Software (Cont…)GNU Operating System http://www.gnu.org/ “Free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech”, not as in “free beer” Free software is a matter of the users freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. Cont…
  7. 7. 7 Free and Open Source Software (Cont…) More precisely, it refers to four kinds of freedom, for the users of theGNU Operating System http://www.gnu.org/ software: • The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0). • The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. • The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2). • The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
  8. 8. 8 Free and Open Source Software (Cont…) Open source doesnt just mean access to the source code. TheOpen Source Initiative http://www.opensource.org/ distribution terms of open-source software must comply with the following criteria: 1. Free Redistribution 2. Source Code 3. Derived Works 4. Integrity of The Authors Source Code 5. No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups 6. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor 7. Distribution of License 8. License Must Not Be Specific to a Product 9. License Must Not Restrict Other Software 10. License Must Be Technology-Neutral
  9. 9. 9Total Library Software - TLS• How do we install a software in Windows? – Double click setup.exe file – Wizards – Next, Next, Next, Finish – Done !!!!• Now do you know how to install a software on Linux – There is a guideline of 8 pages to install only Koha
  10. 10. 10Total Library Solution (Cont..) A suite of favorite library software which are required for almost all type of procedures at any library• Ubuntu Linux 10.04 (LTS)• Koha 3.2.6• Greenstone Digital Library Software 2.84• Zebra 2.0.43• Yaz 3.0.52-1• DSpace 1.7• WordPress 3.1.1• phpMyAdmin 3.3.2• Webmin 1.540• FTP Server (vsftpd 2.2.2-3ubuntu6)• Apache version 2.2.14• MySQL 5.1.41• PostgreSQL 8.4.6 http://www.lisolutions.org/tls
  11. 11. 11Resource Sharing• What? – A formal/informal act of sharing different resources available at one library with other libraries of same or different types• Why? – Better utilization of resources – Overcome the budgetary constraints• How? – MoUs, Long term/Short term contracts – Informal resource sharing

Or select "Install" to start installation to hard disk.• Give username and password on the way• Next, Next, Next, Finish• Done• That’s it… No need to configure• Everything is pre-installed and pre-configured ** Customization can be done whenever require as source codeof TLS is Open
  25. 25. 25RS Model: Consortium• A consortium of Science and Technology Libraries (Initially Strategic Organizations only)• All participating libraries/organizations will sign an MoU with the consortium• TLS will be installed at a central place• One technical person (System Librarian) will be assigned for this project from each organization• A domain for this consortium will be obtained• A committee will be formed to design the terms and conditions for this consortium
