B302 - Open Source Solutions & Apps

11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Steinbeck Forum (Conference Center)
Jim Peterson, IT Manager & Media Relations, Goodnight Memorial Library
Steven Irving, Electronic Services Librarian, Southern Utah University
Richard Eissinger, Instructional Services Librarian, Southern Utah University

This session is all about using creative open source solutions in libraries—from libraries to afford accepting credit and debit card payments (without chargeback fees) for fines and lost items, as well as donations electronically to demonstrating Untangle, an open-source Super Friend to help you manage access to the internet for all your users. The software is free and will likely run on an old PC you have lying around. Peterson illustrates how to upgrade on your PC, gives a broad overview of Untangle’s features and capabilities, and discusses how easy it is to block bad stuff while allowing the good stuff. The second half of this session focuses on Android and iOS apps, including free apps for wireless and remote systems administration as well as others for saving time and being more efficient.
