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.

SPEAKERS

  • Michelle Suranofsky – Lehigh University
  • Chris Manly – Cornell University
  • Jakub Skoczen – Index Data

FOLIO Special Interest Groups

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

Integrating the Library into New Methods of Research

Event: Integrating the Library into New Methods of Research
Time: Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 at 11:00AM EDT / 1500GMT
The Forum recording is here.

To a high degree researchers depend on digital workflows for discovery, transformation and sharing of knowledge. Yet most of these workflows are fragmented. It’s difficult to work continuously and cumulatively with scientific information for individuals and even more problematic for teams.

The FOLIO project is exploring how we might support academic workflows and new methods of research. How might we integrate fragmented micro research processes for individuals for discovery and transformation of knowledge and how might we help sharing and productivity in teams?

We imagine that it should be possible to link what’s happening in processes across search, subscription, retainment, refinding, analysis and sharing of scientific information and that libraries can play a central role in this.

The forum is the first public sharing of our exploration efforts and early stage ideas. We hope that you’ll participate actively in the discussion and help shape our future vision.

Please bear in mind that the content will be of explorative nature and that we haven’t reached any conclusions yet about how this will influence our project. The ideas we are wrestling with might however have far reaching impact for our project and ultimately the role of academic libraries in the future research landscape.

SPEAKER: Jacob Jaskov, Founder and CEO, The Behaviour Bureau

For developers interested in working with FOLIO, this webinar is a primer on how to engage with the FOLIO code. The webinar will be light on presentation and leave more time for open questions-and-answers.

The presentation portion will cover two main topics. First, provide context around how the FOLIO platform provides integration points for module development and what that means for developing modules in FOLIO. Second, a look at how the platform pieces come together in the user interface to provide functionality to the end user. The presenters will be showing some code and data structures as well as the current user experience prototype.

Are you wondering how to participate in FOLIO? Having trouble figuring out where and how to engage? Never used Discuss? What is Slack? How do I get accounts?

Our next FOLIO Forum will discuss the FOLIO communication channels, what they are used for, how to join, and what you can expect on each channel. In a large, international and distributed project like FOLIO, we need many ways to support conversation, debate, synthesis, aggregation, understanding, consensus, and codification. We are still young in the FOLIO community’s experience, but are borrowing ideas from other projects. We are using Slack, Discourse, Confluence, WebEx, Google Docs, GitHub, WordPress, and Jira – all coming online to support our engagement and interaction needs. We will give you a guide to navigate our websites and communications channels and provide basic primers on the purpose and level of engagement on each. After our presentation, we will have a Q&A session.

SPEAKERS:

  • Peter Murray, Open Source Community Advocate at Index Data
  • Michael Winkler, Managing Director (and cat herder) at OLE
