Marketing materials from ILS vendor touches off a flurry of reaction

,----[ Quote ]
| Late last night, news of a document from 
| SirsiDynix VP of Innovation Stephen Abram 
| slamming open source library systems began 
| circulating via Twitter. Within a day, it has 
| drawn much commentary, both pointed and 
| cautious, from those in the heated debate 
| between open source and proprietary integrated 
| library system (ILS) software.

SirsiDynix Corp restricted lobby paper against Open Source technologies, Sep 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| This document was released only to a select
| number of existing customers of the company
| SirsiDynix, a proprietary library automation
| software vendor. It has not been released more
| broadly specifically because of the
| misinformation about open source software and
| possible libel per se against certain
| competitors contained therein.
| SirsiDynix is currently embroiled in a lawsuit
| with one of the largest public libraries in the
| U.S. (Queens Borough, NY) and this document
| does illustrate the less-than-ethical nature of
| this company.
| The source states that the document should be
| leaked so that everyone can see to what extent
| SirsiDynix will attempt to spread falsehoods
| and smear open source and the proponents of
| open source.
