Resource Management in FOLIO: A First Look


Event: Resource Management in FOLIO: A First Look
Time: Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 11:00AM EST / 1600 GMT
Recording Here

Resource Management within FOLIO is designed to support libraries in all of their selection and acquisitions needs across all print and electronic formats. Introduced in the last FOLIOForum, “The Kabalog,” FOLIO’s data model supports the intricate relationships that frequently occur in content bundled together for acquisitions purposes, as well as linking descriptive metadata, acquisitions information, and knowledge base information to avoid duplication and repetitive work. Reusable functionality to support lifecycle management will be coded into separate apps that can be plugged into any part of the system to provide a consistent user experience. Many of FOLIO’s modules will be designed to integrate with other selection and acquisitions work that may occur outside of FOLIO, from communication in emails to databases for selection.

Kristin Martin and Kristen Wilson, members of the Resource Management Special Interest Group, will provide an overview of the work done to date and an introduction to the functionality by sharing mock-ups, sketches and a prototype of work done to date.

SPEAKERS:

  • Kristin E. Martin, Electronic Resources Management Librarian, University of Chicago
  • Kristen Wilson, Associate Head, Acquisitions and Discovery, North Carolina State University

FOLIO is emerging into a world where there is a growing need to support a broadening spectrum of resources, expressed in a widening variety of metadata representations and formats. At the same time, organizations are being asked to reduce the effort involved in describing and managing the resources a library makes available.

In this forum, Marc will talk about the conversations that the FOLIO community have been having around the challenges and opportunities for resource and metadata management, and will share the current thinking on how we hope to embrace the potential of future approaches whilst supporting where we are now to provide the ability to incrementally migrate.

SPEAKER:

  • Marc Johnson, software developer at Knowledge Integration

The FOLIO Platform continues on a fast development track. In this forum, you will hear an update on the roadmap for releasing version 1 of the platform and see a live demo of the components of the system now in place.  This is an exciting time for the FOLIO community as the the first iterations of the prototype demonstrated last year can be seen in running code.  This forum is an update on the one presented last year when the development roadmap was first laid out.  What does the long term path for FOLIO development look like?  What is the development status of the first applications and the short term goals?  How might you be able to get involved? Come hear Harry Kaplanian present the short, medium and long term milestones along the FOLIO roadmap and Kurt Nordstrom give a demonstration of the platform as it exists today.

SPEAKERS:

  • Harry Kaplanian, Senior Director of Product Management, Software Services at EBSCO Information Services

FOLIO Community: Strategic goals for small & midsize institutions


Event: FOLIO Community: Strategic goals for small & midsize institutions
Time: Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 11:00AM EST / 1600 GMT
Recording available Here

FOLIO, as a community-driven effort, is made up of people, and is shaped by the goals and strategic interests of those participants. More than software, FOLIO is a shared and open space where the library community can share our needs and wants, where we can discuss how and where libraries innovate and help shape the direction of the systems we rely on. It is within this space that software can be designed and held consistent to those strategic services that libraries provide to, and wish to innovate for, their communities.

It is important to understand that FOLIO is not the exclusive domain of large research libraries and well-resourced consortia. As a participant-driven community, FOLIO welcomes input from the wide and diverse library community. This panel will explore FOLIO from the perspective of three small to mid sized organizations. They will look at resource management needs, their need to align more closely with the broader academic institution, and the need for real innovation in library technology. Each will discuss how FOLIO supports their strategic aims, and provides avenues for engagement, impact, and leadership, no matter the size of the institution.

There will be plenty of time for questions.

PRESENTERS

  • Tania Fersenheim – Content & Applications Manager, Fenway Libraries Online

Onboarding Community Developers

Event: Onboarding Community FOLIO Developers
Time: Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at
11:00AM EST / 1600 GMT

In this recording, Matt Connolly from Cornell University follows a path to installing FOLIO components that is now deprecated and the new process is much simpler.  We recommend new developers follow the FOLIO Developers Curriculum if they intend to see how all of the pieces fit together and start developing new modules.  Alternatively, developers can use the pre-built Vagrant boxes to see the current state of FOLIO development without needing to build all of the individual components.

Recording Available Here (Note: Session already in progress when recording starts)

FOLIO Technical Review Team Report

Event: FOLIO Technical Review Team Report
Time: Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 11:00AM EST / 1600 GMT
Recording Available Here

Please come join FOLIOForum!

In mid-September 2016, the OLE Board convened the FOLIO Technical Review Team to perform an independent review of the FOLIO Platform to determine its viability as a library services development platform. The findings of this review, completed in December 2016, informed the OLE Board decision to commit development teams to work in FOLIO. The process that the team took provides an objective review of the platform from the perspective of architecture, development, and operations.

In this forum, members of the Team will discuss their process, analysis, and findings. Additionally, the forum will include discussions with the lead developer from Index Data on progress the development team has made since the report was issued. This forum should be of interest to anyone considering developing in FOLIO. The forum will include opportunities for questions and commentary from attendees.

Event: Community Sourcing Development: FOLIO Special Interest Groups
Time: Wednesday, December 7th, 2016 at 11:00AM EST / 1600 GMT
Recording Available: Here
Powerpoint Available: Here

 

Recently, we learned about FOLIO’s roadmap for development from Harry Kaplanian at EBSCO. The FOLIO project is a joint venture and will be relying upon the experiences and knowledge of functional experts across the library world. Teams of experts are being organized into Special Interest Groups (SIGs), to work on different functional areas of development for the FOLIO suite of software. Within the SIGs both functional experts from libraries and project developers work closely together with user experience designers and project developers to develop FOLIO. This forum will provide a history of work done to date on FOLIO using SIGs, as well as information on new SIGs being organized around the functional areas of access management, user management, and metadata management. We will also go into more detail and provide a summary of work currently underway by the Resource Management SIG. We will cover the different communication channels and opportunities for additional involvement by interested experts.

SPEAKERS:

  • Peter Murray, Open Source Community Advocate at Index Data
  • Dracine Hodges, Head of Technical Services, Duke University Libraries
  • Kristen Wilson, Associate Head of Acquisitions and Discovery, North Carolina State University Libraries
  • Kristin Martin, Electronic Resources Management Librarian, University of Chicago
