LibreOffice is playing a greater role in academia today. From its use within academic circles, through use at university and college institutions and use in research, experiment and development. How large a role the office suite plays in these circles are the result of the tools, fiability of code as well as its ease of accommodation of extensions. LibreOffice is always of interest to the valued people who are used to working at the bleeding edge of discoveries just as these same people are of interest to the LibreOffice membership who are interested in working at the bleeding edge of office suite adaptation to the tasks that are asked of it.
