Demo Hall: Rethinking it all with FOLIO: an Open Innovation Platform

Libraries and other institutions have typically been constrained by the resource management and data models of their resource management systems. Indeed, existing standards have long ruled the roost for cataloging bibliographic items or describing objects including digital collections and archives. Now, new thinking is taking shape through FOLIO – a community collaboration to develop an open source library services platform built for innovation. As community partners look to rethink legacy approaches they are defining new models and tackling core questions.   This presentation will discuss resource management in FOLIO, a community collaboration to develop an open source library services platform built for innovation. FOLIO brings together the management of electronic, digital and physical resources under one roof leveraging a domain model and record format called “Codex”. The Codex underlies the FOLIO approach of ‘referential cataloging’; FOLIO references (links to) master records in multiple formats that reside in one or more knowledgebases of either print or physical resources. As such, the FOLIO approach is format agnostic; referenced records may constitute multiple formats such as MARC, Dublin Core, PBCore, BIBFRAME, etc., which are converted to a FOLIO Codex record.  In this presentation, the presenter will discuss the Codex approach in FOLIO. The presenter will look at how the Codex is based on the principles of BIBFRAME. Additionally, the presenter will address how FOLIO, through the Codex and ideas of referential cataloging, will support Linked Open Data (LOD) in ways that ensure further innovation for libraries and other cultural institutions.
