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.

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)

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
