Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In June 2016, the FOLIO project was announced to the library community. The project, now well underway, has an engaged and growing community of librarians, developers and commercial entities. Design and development of the platform has progressed at a steady rate. And, most importantly, the platform fundamentals have been established through a network of participants who are focused on delivering an architecture for evolution and growth. In this meeting you will have the opportunity to learn about the FOLIO Project and its current status. The presenters will discuss the project underpinnings that support community collaboration and innovation. They will touch upon how FOLIO eliminates issues around 'legacy' software through a new approach that ensures the platform will be future-proof and sustainable. In addition, the presenters will look at new approaches to cataloging and resource management. Finally, the presenters will address the industry shift in vendor-library collaboration that FOLIO addresses through the creation of a true platform built for community participation from vendors and libraries alike.

The library community is undergoing a disruption in how we use technology. It's new, it's open source, and it's community driven to support a community of innovation. Talk to me about FOLIO - the open source library services platform!
