The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is supporting the development of three open source software products to support libraries, archives and museums: OLE for libraries; the Next Generation Archival Management Tool for archives; and CollectionSpace for museums. These software products have the potential to provide integrated access to content and services across the three communities. The panelists will provide brief summaries of the goals of their respective development efforts, and discuss whether and where benefits can be derived by collaborating on technical development across these projects. What are the common access, interoperability, metadata and management requirements? How do these products best support integrated and effective scholarship? What do the LAMs need to do in order to support and sustain these tools?
