A new relationship between EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and Via Appia ensures that libraries in Brazil looking to adopt the FOLIO Library Services Platform (LSP) will have access to local hosting and support services. Via Appia will provide FOLIO implementation and support services, backed by EBSCO-hosting technology and data services. Via Appia, founded in 1993 is located in Brasilia, Brazil, and is committed to the innovation and commercialisation of products in library systems.
EBSCO has supported FOLIO with funding, developers and project management, as well as provided funding for other open source projects including Koha. In addition to partnering with service providers around the globe, EBSCO will also be providing hosting services and advanced software support to libraries. EBSCO is also creating a complement of data integration services for libraries adopting the FOLIO LSP.
FOLIO is a community of librarians, developers and service providers working together to create an open source LSP that supports traditional resource management functionality but which has been designed so that it can extend into emerging areas. FOLIO applications are modular and based on microservices allowing multiple vendors or libraries to contribute applications and enabling FOLIO to exist as a platform for innovation.
