FOLIO Project Update – Week of May 25, 2020

The FOLIO Implementation Group is continuing to monitor the JIRA tickets being updated by the five participating libraries.

The Resource Management SIG discussed Material Type and came away with a recommendation to split the Order Material Type vocabulary from the Item Material Type vocabulary. Implementation of this is being discussed in both the RM and RA SIGs.

The Metadata Management SIG talked about use cases, search options and desired results for cross-app searching. This information will inform discussions in the App Interaction SIG. There was also a conversation about MARC records in SRS for non-bibliographic data (holdings, authorities).

The Reporting SIG is preparing for a FOLIO Forum presentation in July, which will provide demonstrations of report queries running against the Library Data Platform (LDP) from the Resource Access, Metadata Management, and Resource Management functional areas. The LDP team have released LDP 0.8.9.

The Resource Access SIG discussed functionality for Delivery fulfillment service points and heard an update from the item status group.
