The Open Library Foundation was established as a not-for-profit organization to promote collaboration among libraries, vendors, service providers, service designers, and developers to address issues of library management. The Foundation supports collective action by the library community in sponsored open source software development projects with collaborative infrastructure for projects to promote distributed engagement, contribution, and sustainability.

The Foundation was inspired by the creation of the FOLIO project. The goal of FOLIO is to create an open source Library Services Platform that can power innovative approaches to current practice, and encourage new and expanded library services that fully support scholarly inquiry and knowledge production. The Foundation’s inaugural projects also include two existing open source communities, the Open Library Environment (OLE) and the Global Open Knowledgebase (GOKb).
