Free and open source software: applications for education, culture and access to information

The guide Свободное программное обеспечение. Приложения для образования, культуры и доступа к информации has been produced by UNESCO’s Office in Almaty in the framework of its project ‘FOSS for Education, Culture and Access to Information’.

This publication, currently available only in Russain, provides teachers and employees of museums and libraries with practical recommendations on the use of free and open source software (FOSS) in order to improve the potential of their institutions.

Three FOSS products have been successfully used by cultural and educational institutions in Central Asia, under UNESCO projects, since the last ten years: Moodle, Museolog Museum’s Digital Catalogue and Greenstone Digital Library Software.

The present guide contains the detailed descriptions of these three products and instructions on their use. Readers will also find the translation into Russian of the CD-ROM produced by UNESCO’s Office in Bangkok, Web Tools for Educators, and a thesaurus of terms related to ICT and culture.
