The Emergence of a New Model in Library Technology
Library technology is based on monolithic systems that lack key traits for success: the ability to create value for all users and leverage resources they don’t own. FOLIO, an open source project, aims to reimagine library software. It moves beyond Integrated Library Systems to a new paradigm, where apps are built by service providers on a platform, providing new services to users. The initiative is underway, with a strong community, modular architecture and a marketplace of apps and services.
