Update on FOLIO, OLE, and the Open Library Foundation

FOLIO is a community of librarians, designers, developers, service providers, and vendors working to develop an open source library services platform. FOLIO began in early 2016, and includes partners at EBSCO, Index Data, and the OLE Partnership. Over the last year, teams from these collaborators have worked towards the first code release in August of 2016, with continuous releases since. The OLE Partners have been active in FOLIO from the beginning and have restructured their effort to fully support FOLIO. OLE has worked with EBSCO and Index Data to set up community infrastructure for large scale and distributed design and development work. Part of that infrastructure is the Open Library Foundation, a new not-for-profit organization chartered to support open source community efforts. The Foundation seeks to enable, support and sustain efforts like FOLIO by creating an open forum for discussion about library management issues, and action to develop solutions. In this session, principals from the OLE Partners, Open Library Foundation, and FOLIO communities will provide updates and chart shared future directions. Learn about how open source communities restructure and evolve for innovation and inclusiveness. And learn how librarians, designers, software developers, and commercial vendors can collaborate to advance the scope of library technologies.
