FOLIO Adds Members and Unveils a New Governance Model

The FOLIO project added new member organizations and is using a new governance model. According to the press release, “The changes are designed to open the project to a wider variety of member libraries and organizations with a new structure for both involvement and leadership.” FOLIO now has more than 25 member organizations participating at various membership levels. The governance model “is designed to support open, transparent and respectful collaboration to create a more diverse community and provide more decentralized decision-making. Those taking part in the open source project will have a more structured way to influence the roadmap and engage in the project at the operational level.”

“In looking at the long-term goals of FOLIO, we recognize that we need to be as open and transparent as possible and welcome institutions and organizations of all sizes into the community and give them a voice in the project,” says Kirstin Kemner-Heek, FOLIO product council chairperson.
