Ithaka study on Open Source Software in Higher Education
Our colleagues at Ithaka have made available their study on open source software and higher education, which should be of interest to many CNI-announce readers. More details below.

Ithaka is pleased to announce the availability of the report "Software and Collaboration in Higher Education: A Study of Open Source Software" on its website at: The report addresses issues related to how and whether a nonprofit facilitating organization might improve the ability of higher education to develop and support open source software for key academic and business needs. The principal investigator for this study was Paul N. Courant of the University of Michigan.

Comments and feedback would be much appreciated, as we work with concerned academic leaders to determine what steps should be taken next.
Funding for this study was provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Carnegie Mellon University, Foothill-De Anza Community College, Marist College, the University of Indiana, the University of Michigan, Stanford University, the University of North Carolina, and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
