Thanks for sharing this. This is the first I’ve heard of FOLIO (and by some link-clicking, I found this useful site: https://www.folio.org/)
To be clear, is FOLIO the name of the new project & platform, while OLE (along with Index Data, et al.) is a participating organization? I think I’m trying to sort out the distinctions (if any) between FOLIO, OLE and the Open Library Community (Forum?).
It’s good to see this getting off the ground, and also the healthy list of participants to date<https://www.folio.org/collaboration/>.
