EBSCO Reaffirms Its Commitment to Open Source

EBSCO Information Services issued a statement to the library community. It reads, in part: 

Further consolidation in the ILS space was not unexpected. The collective of the library community from this point forward will shape the future of library technology.

For EBSCO, our position has never wavered. We believe that innovation is rooted in choice and open systems. We continue to work to ensure that our various services [GOBI, EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), EBSCONET, etc.] interoperate with any other open system that may be used in the libraries that we support. As it relates to the recent acquisition news, our desire to support mutual customers of EBSCO and Innovative has not changed.

EBSCO is dedicated to the principles and technical approaches that define FOLIO. This means open source code, open system philosophies, microservices architecture, and above all, an international community approach to sharing ideas and developing modern systems.

For more information, read the blog post.
