Transforming the Library Services Platform: Why the Future of Libraries is Open

FOLIO, an international effort to develop an open-source Library Services Platform, is unique in the scope of effort and the coordinated cooperation amongst organizations with diverse but convergent goals.

This presentation will explore how the FOLIO Project is changing the technology landscape for libraries by providing a truly open source model for innovation.  Based on a microservices architecture, FOLIO helps libraries break out of legacy technologies and standards.

The FOLIO Community is a vibrant ecosystem of partners that creates economies of scale to accomplish a shared vision for transforming the work of libraries. Our strong working relationship between not-for-profit and commercial entities is forging new paths in library and vendor collaboration.
