Libraries can get and share the ideas to reduce the staff efforts and enhance user services through these software which is badly needed now a days. Government is also promoting the open source solutions and now a days almost each library is using some OSS in their libraries. Can library leaders think of such consortium where all can share their requirements and new common ideas which can be enhanced in the existing software at low cost?
For example as i know many government and private organization have paid huge amount for Koha implementations and customization but that customization code never came to public domain for benefit of others as per ethics of open source solutions. Many libraries have paid money separately for same features in the software without understanding how to get the software customized with minimum payment and maximum benefit to all.
I hope our leaders will think on this !
