Resonant GuideSchoolForge News has a great article on..."Have you wanted to go to your school and explain why they should use more Open Source Software but not had the time to really sit down and put together a good presentation of why it should? It may have been done for you!
Open Source Software Advocacy Documentation
This site strives to be a source for documents that will help people advocate the use of Open Source Software in their communities, schools, companies, governments, and families. It is intended for use by people who are already convinced that open source is a good thing and want to convince others of it.

Open Source in School Computer Labs
This document is intended to convince school administrators that using Open Source Software in their schools' computer labs is a good thing. It covers both use of OSS programs on Windows/Mac and use of Linux. It is written with United States public school systems in mind, but is not explicitly restricted to them.

Take a look at for a paper explaining how OSS can save your school money and time and make computing more affordable for its families. Because the paper is released under the creative commons attribution shareAlike license, you can tailor it for your school's needs. Of course they would appreciate input on how to improve it.

This document is available in the following formats [English]:
• OPENOFFICE version 2004-01-26. (prefered version.)
• PDF version 2004-01-26
• HTML version 2004-01-26
• MS Word version 2004-01-26

New Link: Open Source Systems for Libraries OSS4LIB Our mission is to cultivate the collaborative power of open source software engineering to build better and free systems for use in libraries. Toward this end, we maintain a listing of free software and systems designed for libraries (the physical, books-on-shelves kind), and we track news about project updates or related issues of interest.
