FOLIO Panel at ALA Annual New Orleans FOLIO Early Adopters

Early Adopters Panel

Join panelists who are early adopters of the FOLIO platform for a lively discussion about their decision to implement the open source library services platform. Hear what their plans are for implementation, how they will collaborate, what challenges they expect, and what benefits the platform will provide to their libraries.

The panel will be moderated, and there will be plenty of time for questions from the audience.
