In this session, key leaders from the open/community source projects ArchivesSpace, CollectionSpace, and Kuali OLE (Open Library Environment) will share their experience in building community support for open source software in their respective communities of archives, libraries, and museums. This cultural heritage triumvirate is commonly known as GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums), and while there are many involved in these areas with a long history of open and community source software, cultural heritage institutions entirely driven by open source information management systems is only just now becoming plausible.
