SirsiDynix: Integrated Library System Platforms on Open Source
Around 09-Sept-2009, a SirsiDynix Corp position paper, "Integrated Library System Platforms on Open Source" by Vice President of Innovation Stephen Abram, was authored and distributed 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" .

"Some of the most security-conscious entities, like the United States Department of Defense, restrict the use of open source software for fear that it could pose a terrorist opportunity."
