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.

FOLIO is on a fast development track with the public announcement of the project in June and the opening of the code in August. Subject matter experts, developers, and strategists are now working to bring the first applications to the platform next year. 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.
