Event description

Description

Imagine a community working together to develop technologies that meet the unique functional needs of each library today, while positioning libraries to grow and evolve into the future. FOLIO uniquely fosters deep collaboration between libraries and vendors in order to share understanding and to instantiate, promote, facilitate, deliver and sustain a modern approach to library technology infrastructure. FOLIO community members function as peers, each having a particular role and expertise to bring to the collaboration.

Join fellow librarians as we explore the future of library technology. Discuss the FOLIO project, a community collaboration to develop an open source platform that will support traditional library management functionality and is built for innovation. Help envision the future of your library.

Be a part of the future of libraries.
