Recently, we learned about FOLIO’s roadmap for development from Harry Kaplanian at EBSCO. The FOLIO project is a joint venture between libraries, developers, and service providers, and will be relying upon the experiences and knowledge of functional experts across the library world to implement the roadmap. 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 functional experts from libraries work closely together with user experience designers and project developers to design functionality for FOLIO. This forum will provide a history of work done to date on FOLIO 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.
