Talking with Talis: Open Source Evangelist Nicole Engard

Nicole

Richard Wallis reports:

2007 Library Journal Mover & Shaker, Nicole C. Engard known for her work at Jenkins Law Library and more recently Princeton Theological Seminary Library, is on the move in to a new and interesting role. Nicole is joining LibLime, the library Open Software company behind Koha, as their Open Software Evangelist.

In this Talking with Talis show, I talk with Nicole about her career so far, the challenge of her new role, and her rear view of the library systems landscape.

I think we should watch developments such as this very closely. The structure and focus of Nicole’s new position may influence and guide future jobs for librarians in consortia, large library systems and our associations. I am very happy to see this move and the press around it.
