Platform & Roadmap


Status & Roadmap

Platform development is well underway. By 2019, early adopters will have FOLIO running in their libraries.

Phase 1: Alpha Release

The alpha version was released in January 2018. Beta partners will implement and test the version in order to release the beta version in early 2019.

Phase 2: Platform Releases

Code is released early and often. The beta will roll out in early 2019. The community can implement the platform, give feedback and follow development progress.

Phase 3: FOLIO Running in Libraries

By early 2019, it is expected that at least three libraries will have implemented FOLIO as their library services platform.

Phase 4: Early Implementers

Eleven libraries plan to implement FOLIO in 2019. Improvements will occur frequently, based on feedback from early adopters. View the Early Implementers

Applications easily connect to each other, so you can choose applications, develop, or adjust workflows. Any vendor or library may contribute applications as open source or for-fee.


Choose whether to implement and host the platform on premises or through a vendor. Create and enhance applications at your institution or with a vendor to meet your needs.


FOLIO can be integrated with a myriad of applications within and outside of your institution such as university enterprise systems, institutional repositories, research management, discovery and more.
