http://groups.google.com/group/sf-uk-discuss/about The website contains many case studies, and the (low traffic) mailing list a number of interesting threads on the subject. SF-UK is also involved in organising events such as FLOSSIE (Free Libre & Open Source Software in Education) - the next one takes place in July.
