EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and Universal Knowledge Software (UKS) have announced a partnership to support libraries adopting the FOLIO Library Services Platform (LSP). EBSCO and UKS will work together to provide reliable hosting and support services locally.
By supporting FOLIO libraries, UKS will help increase the adoption of FOLIO in South Africa’s academic library sector and provide additional services to their current customers.
EBSCO supports FOLIO with funding, developers and project management. In addition to working with established open source services providers, EBSCO also provides hosting services and advanced software support, as well as a variety of data integration services for libraries adopting the FOLIO LSP.
FOLIO encompasses a community of librarians, developers and service providers who have joined special interest groups actively creating an open source LSP that supports traditional ILS functionality with ability to add additional value and services. The applications are modular and allow multiple vendors or libraries to contribute applications.
