FOLIO Preps for a Prosperous Year
Open source library services project FOLIO announced that it has reached “a variety of notable development milestones.” The FOLIO Community of libraries, vendors, and developers is expanding—there are seven development teams comprising 60-plus developers, as well as about 150 subject matter experts from 15-plus libraries and consortia. More than 10 organizations from four continents have agreed to offer services. A beta release of FOLIO is planned for July 2018.
“At the beginning of 2017, we were developing the very first app on the FOLIO platform. A year later, we have multiple teams comprised of participants from even more organizations, all working towards a common goal. It is inspiring,” says Sebastian Hammer, co-founder and president of Index Data, which is leading the project’s technical development.
