A “right-for-you” environment
Beyond a next-gen solution, FOLIO is 100% driven by and open to the community, so you don’t need to deal with “forced packages” and “predetermined workflows.” Because of the innate flexibility, libraries will have a system including traditional resource management (ILS) functionality with only the applications that you want. Any application that you choose — from different vendors or developers — will work together in harmony.
You are supported
No need to answer the question “who do I call?” when you need support working with various applications. SirsiDynix, ByWater, EBSCO, Index Data and others will offer full hosting and support services to support your day-to-day and strategic needs. Services include: implementation, hosting, service and support and training.
Supporting your own solution
As a true open source project, any library or library consortia can choose to host and operate FOLIO locally. The software is free to any library.
