The Linux-Open Source Lab is the nation's first open-source laboratory focused on the social sciences. It also provides a place on campus where UMass faculty and students from all disciplines can explore the innovative capabilities of open source software for research and teaching.
The lab is outfitted with over twenty desktop computers, software, a printer, and a server. The lab also provides an IBM-employed intern who will help researchers devise collaborative work spaces, modify existing software or utilize lab resources for their project needs.
