In September, 2009, a SirsiDynix Corp report, "Integrated Library System Platforms on Open Source", was released to a group of SirsiDynix customers.

On 29-Oct-2009, the report was posted on Wikileaks, which "spreads a fantastic amount of fear, uncertainty and doubt about both open source software in general and, more specifically, the suitability of open source integrated library systems" [1].
