The principle aim of this study is to investigate the state of adoption of open source software (OSS) in libraries in Trinidad and Tobago. It seeks to answer questions pertaining to the extent of use of OSS, the benefits or advantages of using OSS generally and in the Trinidad and Tobago context and the key issues related to the adoption of OSS generally and as it relates to the Trinidad and Tobago environment. Another area of enquiry is the level of awareness, interest and attitudes toward the value of adopting OSS among library and information professionals in Trinidad and Tobago.
