Chalmers University of Technology to leverage FOLIO library services platform -

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) is teaming up with Chalmers University of Technology to serve as the first FOLIO beta partner. As a touchstone for the global academic library community, Chalmers Library will prove out FOLIO's ability to satisfy traditional resource management requirements while allowing for extensibility into new services based on a vibrant new technology ecosystem for libraries.

FOLIO, a community collaboration to develop an open source LSP, is being built in collaboration with more than a dozen organisations worldwide. The beta program is an instrumental step in developing and establishing FOLIO as the primary platform shared globally for library management and enablement.

Chalmers University Head of the Department of Communication and Learning in Science and Library Director, Daniel Forsman says the beta partnership allows Chalmers to explore, learn and share its work within the FOLIO community.

The partnership will also help EBSCO develop hosting and services that will enable libraries of all sizes to leverage the full benefits of FOLIO, ultimately demonstrating its viability as a practical and compelling library services platform.

FOLIO, which stands for the Future of Libraries is Open, is a community coming together to develop a reimagined library services platform, one that supports traditional resource management requirements and functionality, yet is engineered for innovation and growth through industry collaboration. FOLIO allows for extensibility into new services for libraries and will dramatically change the technology ecosystem available to libraries, service providers and technology developers.
