Advocacy material for "going open source"?

I work in a government-funded research facility. Over the past 6
years, we created in-house software for managing our research data.
I was the primary responsible person for this project. Now, I'd
like to see it being converted into an open-source project. GPL,
My boss does not rule it out straight away. But he likes to be
convinced that it is a good move. He has only little idea about
open-source software, licences and the like. By the way, we have no
other "business plan" with this software.
My question is: Is there any material (slides, web pages, books,
case studies, peer-reviewed articles) that help with promoting
converting to an open-source model? Could you point me to it?
(I raised this question on a German FSF mailing list a couple of
months ago but the responses did only contain personal opinions.
While I agree with all of it, it does not help me.)
