…This webinar will discuss FOLIO, a community collaboration to develop an open source library platform built for innovation. Presenters will explore what FOLIO can mean for libraries: the ability to leverage the open source platform and the growing community to spur innovation and offer new services; reimagining resource management centered on a central knowledgebase; rethinking workflows and traditional ILS functions to allow for more efficiencies and better ways to serve our users; the means by which vendors and libraries alike can contribute to the building of FOLIO. Participants will also hear an overview of the growing FOLIO community, its infrastructure and how to become involved.
