Open Source ILS Wins Mellon Award

Congrats to the folks of the Georgie PINES library system who recently won the $50,000 Mellon Award for Technology Collaboration.

“The Mellon Awards honor not-for-profit organizations for leadership in the collaborative development of open-source software tools with particular application to higher education and cultural heritage not-for-profit activities.”

The award was present by Tim Berners-Lee. He invented something he calls the “World Wide Web”, which we here at SLISIT think might catch on one day.
