Traditionally, the library services platform (LSP) has focused on providing a comprehensive, all-in-one solution for the management of library operations. Yet, at the same time, the traditional LSP has not been able to fulfill all needs. Indeed, as one size does not fit all, libraries increasingly look at adopting tools that provide much desired functionality underserved by the LSP. These tools run the gamut from stand-alone discovery, to integration with learning environments, support for financials, integration of institutional repositories, deployment of self-check systems, and much more.

This presentation will discuss FOLIO, a new library and vendor collaboration that has been developing a new open source library services platform. The presenter will discuss the principles of extensibility, allowing any library or developer to readily develop and deploy applications. And the presenter will look at the ideas behind ‘supported open source’ in which multiple service providers will provide end-to-end services for the open source FOLIO platform.
