Future of Libraries is Open

FOLIO is a collaboration of libraries, developers and vendors building an open source library services platform. It is a modern platform that inspires innovation and delivers both new and traditional resource management functionality.


FOLIO represents a critical pivot in the Library Technology landscape. Together libraries and vendors have created an environment for collaboration that allows independence and community ownership of the capabilities and roadmap for technology that powers the library, and the process for managing it. While the technology and architecture are to be admired, perhaps the greatest strength of FOLIO is the community that surrounds it. Open, collaborative, modern, sophisticated … all community owned and directed. Welcome to FOLIO!
