More than fifty universities and library systems across the globe have now adopted the full EBSCO FOLIO Library Services Platform (LSP) or leveraged EBSCO FOLIO Electronic Resource Management (ERM) via EBSCO FOLIO Services. These sites and systems leverage the implementation expertise, hosting, and support services available through EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO). Most have implemented the full LSP, and some have moved from the existing ERM tools or instituted their first-ever ERM leveraging EBSCO FOLIO.
These 50+ libraries have also benefited from integrations with existing EBSCO services and resources, including EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS), GOBI®, EBSCONET®, and EBSCO's new analytics tool, Panorama™, and from EBSCO's partnerships with services such as OpenAthens. Sites and systems that have adopted the EBSCO FOLIO ERM can now manage the entire lifecycle of their library or system's electronic resources powered by the EBSCO Knowledge Base, allowing library staff to avoid manual data entry and eliminate duplicate work.
EBSCO is an initial founder of the FOLIO project and provides project management and development resources dedicated to the architecture of the FOLIO project. The FOLIO Community comprises library professionals, vendors, and developers who have come together to build an open-source LSP that supports core library management functionality, including circulation, cataloguing, acquisitions, and electronic resource management.
