The NLI has been shortlisted for the 2011 eGovernment Awards in the Open Source eGovernment Award category.

eGovernment Shortlist 2011
The Open Source eGovernment Award is awarded for contribution and participation in an open source project. This participation could be through utilising open source software in an innovative way, core software development, testing of the resulting product or service, contribution to the documentation of the open source project or by providing support services. This award goes beyond the simple use of an open source package and recognises real, practical participation in an open source project or community.
The winners in each category will be announced on Friday, 11 March 2011. For more information, see the Irish eGovernment Awards website.
