Impress Your Professor: Cheap!

We can all use a few ways to save some cash... particularly in this economy. If we can find ways to save our employers money - even better. One of the many ways that individuals and organizations are looking to save their pennies is through the use of open source software.

This stuff has been around for longer than most people think. The idea of incorporating open source software into our lives is still a rather new concept. If you're still fuzzy on what open source software is, I suggest checking out Scot Colford's introduction in the most recent ASIST bulletin.

The take-away message I found: open source software is higly useful and customizable, but only if we're not afraid of it.
