dc.description.abstract One barrier to libraries' adoption of open source software is a lack of in-house expertise to install and maintain the software on a local server. This barrier has deterred potential adopters of Library a la Carte, an open source course and subject guide tool. To extend access to the software without the need for local installation, the Oregon State University Libraries, developers of Library a la Carte, tested a hosted version. For the test implementation, OSU entered into an 18 month partnership with Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) Library, making the course and subject guide software available to OHSU librarians via a cloud platform. In this poster session we will examine the feasibility and scalabilty of hosting Library a la Carte on the cloud, share our evaluation of the pilot, and look at next steps for the project. en_US
