The world of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is changing rapidly. New technologies and new opportunities come and go at an ever-increasing speed. The Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) movement is one such development that is drawing great attention among libraries and library professionals. It offers many opportunities for government organizations, private sector, and educational institutions. Organizations in developing nations that take advantage of free and open source software by implementing them appropriately stand to gain much, while those that fail to take the advantage of this opportunity may find their Information and Communication Technology development lagging behind of comparable organizations.
