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.
